Bilic received a major penalty and a game misconduct for elbowing (Rule 78.3) and a major penalty for high sticking (Rule 62.1), in which two major penalties carry an automatic game misconduct (Rule 38.2).
In other league discipline news, the appeal of the two-game suspension of Calgary Roughnecks defenseman Kellen LeClair has been withdrawn.

The officials called a five-minute Major Penalty on the field, and upon league review, LeClair was assessed a Match Penalty for violation of High Sticking (Rule 62.2), which carried an automatic two-game suspension (Rule 41.2).
