Andrew Ference of the Boston Bruins has been suspended one game for an illegal check to the head of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski.

Ference, 5-11 and 189 pounds, went unpunished in the first period of Boston’s 4-1 playoff win Wednesday night when he elbowed Grabovski in the head by the boards.

The five-foot-11, 183-pound Grabovski finished the game.

“I just remember a pretty hard hit to my head,” the Belarusian forward told reporters Thursday before the ban was handed down.
