Asham gets 4 games, Neal Gets 1 game


Just reported on sportsnet up here in the great white north. They interrupted their live discussion of tonight's Torres' hit on Hossa to announce that Asham got 4 games and Neal 1 game. Panelist Brad May felt that the 4 games was picked because it guaranteed that Asham would not play again in this series (perish the thought that there is 4 more games!). They seemed to feel that Neal's 1 game was a little light, especially because what he did on that one shift was likely worse than what Torres did tonight, but Torres would likely get more as a repeat offender while Neal was not.

The Asham suspension, considering it is the playoffs, seems reasonable. Not sure if Neal getting 1 is enough, but it at least takes out the possibility of immediate retaliation marring what will likely be another gong show in game 4 anyway! Has justice been served? Do the Pens fill those 2 spots with 2 goons? Or do they actually try to play hockey in game 4? Go Flyers!
