In the first period on Wednesday night, Philadelphia’s Chris Vandevelde received one minor penalty for elbowing Chicago captain Jonathan Toews. On the play, Vandevelde appeared to target Toews’ head, and there was a lot of discussion on Twitter from around the league about it only getting a two-minute minor.
