NHL playoffs: Ducks' Bobby Ryan suspended for two games
The incident took place behind the net and was caught by television cameras. NHL officials held a short hearing when the Ducks got to Nashville on Saturday before announcing the decision.
This suspension costs the Ducks one of their top offensive players. Ryan, who skates on the Ducks' top line with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, had 34 goals and 71 points during the regular season. He scored two goals in the Ducks' 5-3 victory Friday.
Brandon McMillan skated with Perry and Getzlaf during practice Saturday. McMillan had 11 goals and 21 points during the regular season.
