Devin Shore was knocked out of the game from a hit by Ian Cole. Shore had an MRI yesterday which revealed he has a Charley horse and minor knee hyperextension. It appears he avoided a serious injury. Cole was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct. There was no hearing by the NHL Player Safety committee.
