Arron Asham has been suspended by the league for attacking Flyers' Brayden Schenn during Game 3 between the Penguins and Flyers. NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan explains in the video below.

AROUND THE WEB
After the mayhem that was game 3 the Penguins will be without 3 forwards tonight for a critical game 4.
James Neal will be suspended for one game after two consecutive hits he placed on Flyers players in the third period on Sunday.
Craig Adams will be suspended also for one game for instigating a fight in the third period on Sunday.
Aaron Asham will be suspended for 4 games after...
The NHL suspended Pittsburgh forward Arron Asham for four games - the remainder of his club's series with the Philadelphia Flyers - and gave a one-game ban to Penguins teammate James Neal on Tuesday night for separate infractions.
Asham was punished after being given a match penalty for attempting to injure Philadelphia forward Brayden Schenn with a cross-check on Sunday in...
The image is good, as Photoshopped pictures go. There is Sidney Crosby's face, with an "Awkward Family Photos" grin, superimposed onto a lion costume. And this pairs with the headline "The Cowardly Penguin."
Well played, Philadelphia Daily News.
Somebody had to take a stand against the Pittsburgh Penguins captain trying to play smarter with his bruised and...
Usually, the fancy photoshopped newspaper covers that make news are saved for the New York tabloids. However, given the heated nature of the Flyers-Penguins series and the ugliness in Game 3, perhaps we were bound to see one of the local papers throw a bomb at the opposition. Yes, that's really Sidney Crosby wearing a lion suit and labeled both as "The Cowardly Penguin...
Put 'em up! Put 'em up! While Sidney Crosby isn't traditionally known for dropping the gloves -- although he did rumble with Claude Giroux in Game 3 -- he might have a little extra incentive to try and demonstrate some manliness in Game 4 of the Penguins-Flyers Eastern Conference quarterfinal series on Wednesday night. That's because Sid the Kid was depicted on the...
The score could have been 20-3 tonight, and it would still count for the same amount of wins and impact on this series: 1.
While getting handled in front of your home crowd (embarrassed frankly), the one positive thing the Flyers can take out of Wednesday night's 10-3 loss to the Penguins is that they still hold a commanding 3-1 series lead.
DISCLAIMER: This is obviously a joke...
PREVIEW 6:30 AM EDT
Looking to complete a sweep of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series, the Philadelphia Flyers return to action after a two-day layoff to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. EDT and will be broadcast locally on CSN Philly, nationally in the U.S. on NBC Sports Network and nationally in Canada on TSN....
Nothing we can say on this blog that hasn't been said already elsewhere.
NHL is in a cultural breakdown of violence, Pens will be without Adams, Asham, and James Neal for game 4.
Hossa taken out of Game 3 of his series on a stretcher tonight. Unbelievable ****.
The Penguins will determine tomorrow evening if they have a handle on reality and we'll be there either watching...
Last night the Pittsburgh Penguins woke up and staved elimination as they destroyed the Philadelphia Flyers 10-3. To say that this game was big for the Penguins and their fans is an understatement. After watching that gem of a hockey game I flipped over to the New York Rangers @ Ottawa Senators game that was in overtime. The Senators ended up winning and while everyone was celebrating...

Seven Questions For the Masses
Craig Adams and James Neal return for Game 5. Who do you sit?
Who impressed you in Game 4?
Who disappointed you?
Do you put Paul Martin back in the Game 5 lineup if heâs healthy enough to play?
Do you go with six or seven defensemen...
Theme of the Night: Keeping the First Round Going.
Philly/Pitt, aka: Why Not?
What the Penguins did right:
* As Sydney said, "We owed it to ourselves."
* Being swept after the season they had would have just been disastrous.
* The Penguins definitely rallied as a result of all the suspensions and regained their focus.
* After another shaky first period, Fleury...
