TORONTO - It seems Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf could be in some hot water.

According to reports late Sunday, Phaneuf will have a hearing with the league -- likely of the phone variety, but you never know -- over an incident involving Bruins defenceman Kevan Miller during Boston's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

With 2:17 left, the Bruins' Miller was rammmed face-first against the boards by the Leafs captain. Replays appeared to show that Phaneuf made contact with Miller's right shoulder but it was still head-scratching why he received no hit-from-behind or boarding penalty.
