Gary Bettman had a good seat for the ugliest moment in a week full of them.

The NHL commissioner was among the sellout crowd at United Center on Tuesday night when Chicago Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa was sent to hospital with a late headshot from Phoenix Coyotes winger Raffi Torres.

It brought Game 3 to a screeching halt – Hossa was taken off the ice on a stretcher – and added yet another discipline case to the growing pile on Brendan Shanahan’s desk. Torres has since been summoned for an in-person hearing on Friday at the league’s New York office, an indication he could receive a ban lasting longer than five games.

Here’s a closer look at the players who have received supplemental discipline in the first week of the playoffs:

Shea Weber, Nashville Predators
Scene of the crime: April 11, Bridgestone Arena, Game 1 between Detroit and Nashville.

Incident: With time expiring in the game, Weber responded to a hit from Henrik Zetterberg by throwing a punch at his opponent before grabbing him by the head and driving him into the end boards. Zetterberg was unhurt on the play.

Punishment: $2,500 fine.

Byron Bitz, Vancouver Canucks
Scene of the crime: April 11, Rogers Arena, Game 1 between Los Angeles and Vancouver.

Incident: Bitz lined up Kyle Clifford and hammered him from behind, putting his shoulder into the Kings forward’s back and head. Clifford suffered a concussion and hasn’t played since.

Punishment: Two-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “Bitz sees Clifford’s back and numbers throughout his approach to this check and has ample time to make a different play.”

Zenon Konopka, Ottawa Senators
Scene of the crime: April 14, Madison Square Garden, Game 2 between Ottawa and the Rangers.

Incident: After being scratched in Game 1, Konopka was inserted into the lineup to mix things up. He got started early by trashing-talking Brian Boyle during warmups while the Rangers forward was giving a live television interview.

Punishment: $2,500 fine for Konopka, $10,000 fine for Senators.

Matt Carkner, Ottawa Senators
Scene of the crime: April 14, Madison Square Garden, Game 2 between Ottawa and the Rangers.

Incident: Carkner jumped Boyle, dropping him to the ice with a pair of punches to the face before continuing to hit him after he went down. Boyle was unhurt. The altercation came in response to an incident in Game 1 that saw Boyle rough up Sens defenceman Erik Karlsson.

Punishment: One-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “Carkner begins punching Boyle and continues to do so well after it is clear that Boyle is an unwilling combatant.”

Carl Hagelin, New York Rangers
Scene of the crime: April 14, Madison Square Garden, Game 2 between Ottawa and the Rangers.

Incident: Hagelin skated towards Daniel Alfredsson in the corner and finished his check with an elbow to the face. The Senators captain suffered a concussion and hasn’t played since. Later, the Rangers released a statement saying they were “perplexed by inconsistencies” in Shanahan’s rulings.

Punishment: Three-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “This hit is a clear violation of what is defined by NHL rules as elbowing.”

Andrew Shaw, Chicago Blackhawks
Scene of the crime: April 14, Jobing.com Arena, Game 2 between Chicago and Phoenix.

Incident: With Mike Smith playing the puck behind his net, Shaw raced in and hammered the Coyotes goaltender with a shoulder to the head. Smith was shaken up on the play but remained in the game.

Punishment: Three-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “As is specifically defined by NHL rules, a goalkeeper is not fair game just because he is outside the goal crease area.”

James Neal, Pittsburgh Penguins
Scene of the crime: April 15, Wells Fargo Center, Game 3 between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Incident: After coming a long way across the ice, Neal knocked Sean Couturier flying with a leaping hit. Later in the shift, he knocked Claude Giroux to the ice with a hit that made contact with the Flyers forward’s head. Couturier and Giroux were both unhurt.

Punishment: One-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “While we are willing to accept Neal’s assertion that on (the Couturier) play he jumped to brace himself for an unintended collision, the fact that 42 seconds later he once again launches prior to making contact to Giroux is not acceptable.”

Arron Asham, Pittsburgh Penguins
Scene of the crime: April 15, Wells Fargo Center, Game 3 between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Incident: Asham knocked Brayden Schenn to the ice with a cross-check to the face and followed it up with a punch to the head. The incident was in response to a clean bodycheck from Schenn on Penguins defenceman Paul Martin. Schenn was unhurt on the play.

Punishment: Four-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “The violent, vengeful nature of the high cross-check is unacceptable. What’s more, having cross-checked Schenn to the ice, Asham goes further by punching him in the back of the head.”

Craig Adams, Pittsburgh Penguins
Scene of the crime: April 15, Wells Fargo Center, Game 3 between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Incident: Adams instigated a fight with Flyers forward Scott Hartnell, who had been tangled with Sidney Crosby. The suspension is automatic because the instigator penalty was assessed with less than five minutes to play in the game.

Punishment: One-game suspension for Adams, $10,000 fine for Penguins coach Dan Bylsma.

Nicklas Backstrom, Washington Capitals
Scene of the crime: April 16, Verizon Center, Game 3 between Boston and Washington.

Incident: After watching teammate Alex Ovechkin get tripped in the corner by Rich Peverley, Backstrom approached the Bruins forward and cross-checked him in the visor. Peverley was unhurt. Later, the Capitals released a statement saying they disagreed with the suspension in light of other transgressions that went unpunished in the series.

Punishment: One-game suspension.

Shanahan’s take: “Backstrom’s reaction is excessive and reckless.”

Raffi Torres, Phoenix Coyotes
Scene of the crime: April 17, United Center, Game 4 between Phoenix and Chicago.

Incident: More than half a second after Marian Hossa had passed the puck, Torres left his feet while launching himself into the unsuspecting Blackhawks forward. Hossa was taken from the ice on a stretcher and released from hospital later in the night. There is no timetable for his return to action.

Punishment: To be determined.
