    Default Kunitz and Downie Get One Game Suspensions

    According to Bob McKenzie's twitter both Chris Kunitz and Steve Downie received one game suspensions.

    From TSN....
    Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steve Downie and Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz were each handed one-game suspensions by the NHL on Tuesday after separate incidents that took place during Game 3 of their series on Monday night.

    Downie got the single-game ban for leaving his feet during a check on Pittsburgh forward Ben Lovejoy at the end boards. Prior to the hit, Lovejoy was able to advance the puck down the ice leading to an early goal for Pittsburgh. The goal negated the penalty Downie was set to receive.

    Kunitz was suspended for his elbow on Tampa Bay forward Simon Gagne, which sent the Lightning player to the ice in front of the Penguins net.

    Pittsburgh leads the series 2-1, and both players will miss Game 4 on Wednesday night. Downie and Kunitz are eligible to return for Game 5 on Saturday in Pittsburgh.
