Winnipeg Free Press:  Verdict delivered on Bogosian hitNo suspension or fine for #4.  They found:

It is the view of the Department of Player Safety that in spite of the fact that there was contact with the head, when Bogosian committed to the check, he was coming for Eakin’s shoulder and Eakin’s change of direction and opening up after his dump-in just prior to the contact contributes enough that there will be no supplementary discipline.

Jets Nation:  Byfuglien – turning it aroundBig Buff is still quite polarizing a figure on the Jets back end.  If you listen to the callers to the TSN Radio 1290 post-games show with Rick Ralph, a number of Jets fans are tired of the Byfuglien experiment on defence and want to see Big Buff banging and crashing as a forward.  The good thing for those who want to see him remain on defence is that his numbers have improved.
