Joffrey Lupul says he’s confused, frustrated and just a little bit wary.

Confused about how the NHL decides which hit is legal and which isn’t.

Frustrated he’s being forced to sit out a game against tough Northeast Division foe the Boston Bruins on Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre.

And wary his two-game suspension might just alter his play, if only the slightest bit.

The Maple Leafs forward was suspended by the NHL on Thursday for a hit to the head on Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Viktor Hedman at the ACC on Wednesday night.
