NEW YORK (AP)- The NHL has given a two-game suspension to Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig for boarding Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinal series.
The St. Charles, Mo. native received a minor penalty for boarding in the second period of Chicago’s 4-2 road loss Friday night. Ballard sustained an upper-body injury on the hit and didn’t travel to Chicago for Game 5.
