On Boillard (updated)

I looked at the tape of Evansville's 6-2 loss to Bloomington from Sunday -- sorry, I don't have any I can share -- and reviewed the melee in which Mario Boillard got ejected for abuse of an official.

Frankly, it's hard to see what's going on in the scrum. But after it's sorted out, you can see Boillard kind of shove or slap at the official's hands, seemingly annoyed that he was still being separated from the fight against the glass.

From what I saw, and I don't claim to have seen it all, it doesn't look like much. Maybe two games worth of suspension for being overly physical.

I just heard from the league that Boilard did, indeed, get two games.
