James Neal Suspended Two Games For Brutal Hit On Derek Dorsett (VIDEO)

NHL.com reports that Dallas Stars left wing James Neal has been suspended two games for a vicious hit on Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Derek Dorsett last night. The hit, which occurred just under seven minutes into the second period, came from behind, leaving Dorsett unable to protect himself. In a truly grim sequence of events, Dorsett flopped to the ground lifelessly as soon as he was struck. He was unable to get to his feet and remained in the locker room the rest of the game.
