Mike Richards Knocks Panthers' David Booth Unconscious - Will Not Be Suspended

During the second period of Saturday's Flyers/Panthers match-up, Mike Richards put a punishing hit on Panthers' forward David Booth, leaving him unconscious.

Booth was carrying the puck through center ice when Richards landed his shoulder to Booth's head.  Booth immediately dropped to the ice - unconscious - delaying the game for several minutes.  Booth was carried off the ice on a stretcher, and taken to Pennsylvania Hospital.  He was released Sunday morning, suffering a concussion.

Richards received a game-misconduct penalty, facing a possible suspension.  After reviewing the incident, the NHL determined that no further disciplinary action was required, and Richards will not be suspended.

"Everything happened so quickly, it's kind of hard to explain," Richards said. "Obviously, I was not trying to hurt him. I was trying to separate him from the puck, but he moved."
