Rene Bourque May Face Discipline for Elbow

Standard Spin: Flames F Rene Bourque will be hearing from Brendan Shanahan regarding an elbow Bourque threw on Nicklas Backstrom in Tuesday's game against the Caps.  The elbow itself was dirty, although not excessively bad.  We would be anticipating a fine, rather than a suspension, however Bourque was already suspended two games for a hit on Brent Seabrook earlier in the season, and that may factor into Shanahan's decision and make for a heavier sentence.  (Jan.4)
