Justin Abdelkader spoke briefly on his hit on Toni Lydman that led to his suspension for Game 4.

“I want to reiterate that there was no intent to injure. I don’t mean to injure anyone, put anyone at harm. I have respect for every one of the players in this league...I play a hard game, I play physical. Things happen really fast out there.”
-Justin Abdelkader told Ansar Khan

“I hope he’s back right away and he’s not injured. It’s an
