NHL VP Colin Campbell and director of officiating Terry Gregson will both attend the Bruins-Penguins game Thursday night, the first meeting of the two teams since Matt Cooke knocked out Marc Savard with a shoulder to the head that may spell the end of Savard's season.

It's expected that the league executives will meet personally tomorrow with both general managers -- Boston's Peter Chiarelli and Pittsburgh's Ray Shero - as well as both head coaches - Boston's Claude Julien and Pittsburgh's Dan Bylsma - to ensure that whatever happens in terms of retribution, it falls within reasonable limits.

The ugly aftermath of the Steve Moore-Todd Bertuzzi incident is likely to be raised as what happens when vigilante justice supercedes common sense.

The league is also expected to use two of its most senior referees - Stephen Walkom and Bill McCreary - as an added element to maintain order in the game.
