The decision was handed out by the league's Department of Player Safety following an in-person hearing with Moore, who is considered a repeat offender.
Analysis: Moore was assessed a match penalty 7:12 into the second period of Monday night's game when he delivered a shoulder to Haula's head in the New York zone after Haula shot the puck. Moore will begin serving the suspension Saturday when the Rangers host the Winnipeg Jets, and he will be eligible to return on Nov. 11 at home against Pittsburgh. He was also suspended for two games in last season's Eastern Conference finals when he hit Montreal's Dale Weise in the head.

Analysis: Moore was ejected midway through the second for a blatant hit to the head of forward Erik Haula that resulted in a match penalty. Moore could be in line for a suspension from the NHL. The game was surprisingly rough considering these teams are in different conferences and meet only twice per season.
