Boucher: Stamkos' eye possibly poked
The details are sketchy, but Lightning coach Guy Boucher said he saw Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik try to at least poke an eye of center Steven Stamkos.
Boucher refused to elaborate. He said it happened during a scrum in front of Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury 5:26 into the third period that resulted in roughing penalties to the Lightning's Victor Hedman and Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz, and a goalie interference penalty on the Lightning's Ryan Malone.
Stamkos declined to comment. The Penguins were gone by the time Boucher spoke. It is believed Lightning GM Steve Yzerman will speak to the league.
