WISNIEWSKI SUSPENDED BY NHL FOR TWO GAMESDefenseman sits for Caps and Penguins

FanHouse: Wiz-Avery video, reaction

5:40 pm: A league source has confirmed that James Wisniewski has been suspended by the NHL for two games. I look forward to seeing how they describe the defenseman’s gesture in the press release. In an Islanders statement, Wisniewski said he will accept the NHL’s decision and move on.


One game too many, in my viewpoint. One game for throat slash (Boynton), one game for stick threat near the face and delivered to the back of the leg (Cammalleri), two games for…you know. This was certainly historic and unprecedented. Can never figure this stuff out and not about to try now. It’s up to the Islanders if they want to say anything. Hillen and Gervais are the lefty and righty warming up in the bullpen. Comments?
