The hit that Flyers captain Mike Richards delivered on the Sabres' Tim Connolly in Sunday's Game 6 will not warrant a suspension, or even an NHL disciplinary hearing, according to reports from Craig Custance of the Sporting News and Nick Kypreos of Rogers SportsNet.

The Flyers likely would have heard about a hearing last night if it were scheduled for today.

Connolly was rammed into the boards headfirst from behind by Richards with a little over 6 minutes left in the second period.

Connolly, who has a concussion history, was helped from the ice and did not return. Richards was given a 2-minute boarding minor, which put the Flyers down two players for 1 minute, 10 seconds, and down a man for the other 50 seconds.

Richards more or less shrugged off the news at the Flyers' media availability on Monday afternoon in Voorhees, N.J.
