Rangers coach rips NHL for incident

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault ripped the NHL on Monday for not further punishing Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds for his incident with Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh on Saturday in Philadelphia, Newsday reported.

Simmonds threw a gloved left hand to McDonagh's jaw after the defenseman high-sticked him in the back of the helmet. Simmonds was ejected but missed no more action. McDonagh missed Monday's 2-1 win over the Devils with a possible concussion.

"An All-Star player gets sucker-punched, goes down. I wonder if that's (Pittsburgh's Sidney) Crosby, what happens? What are the consequences?" Vigneault said.

Game highlight: Petr Mrazek had 23 saves as the host Red Wings beat the Panthers 3-0.

Around the NHL: Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien signed a $38 million, five-year extension.
