The captain received a game misconduct.

Jonathan Kovacevic was also ejected.

Suzuki commented the situation after the game:

#Habs Nick Suzuki on his ejection: "I got him on the top of the helmet, it wasn't under his visor. He kinda took a weird run at me, I gave him a shot, a little scrum...I don't think I did anything that bad - probably the refs just trying to control the game & call a penalty

Suzuki's conduct was disappointing for a captain, but given the intensity of the game, it's hard to fault him for losing his cool.
