Shaw's 12-Game Suspension: Shaw was suspended 12 games by
the NHL during the 1988-89 season for slashing Mario Lemieux at 3:41 of the
first period of the N.Y. Rangers' Oct. 30, 1988, game vs. Pittsburgh. Shaw
flagrantly clubbed his stick across Lemieux's helmet and chest, sending
Lemieux to the ice for several minutes. Shaw's hit was actually a
retaliation for a cross-check in front of the net by Lemieux, and Rangers
players claimed Lemieux was faking his injury to draw a longer penalty,
because at the time of the slash, the Rangers led the Penguins 8-2. Shaw
received a major penalty and a match penalty for the incident. The match
penalty provoked a review by NHL officials. Eager to protect a star player
like Lemieux, the NHL was determined to really crack down on Shaw. The
suspension was announced on Nov. 2, 1988, and Shaw could not return to
action until N.Y. Rangers' Nov. 26, 1988, game at N.Y. Islanders. The
Rangers did not appeal the suspension, although coach Michel Bergeron
publicly stated that he felt Shaw had been given too harsh a punishment.
