Montreal Canadiens defenceman Douglas Murray will have an 11am et phone hearing with the National Hockey League on Thursday after a controversial hit to Michael Kostka of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

The Lightning defenceman was skating with the puck into the Canadiens' zone in the third period when Murray stepped up and caught Kostka with his elbow.

Kostka lay motionless on the ice for a few moments, but was able to skate off under his own power even though a stretcher was taken onto the ice.

Kostka was reportedly diagnosed with a concussion on Wednesday.

Murray received a match penalty on the play. Tampa Bay beat Montreal 3-1 to clinch a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
