Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams has been suspended by the NHL for Game 4 of their playoff series against Philadelphia for instigating a fight.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams was suspended one game Monday for instigating a fight in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The incident occurred late in the third period of the Penguins' 8-4 loss Sunday when Adams drew a minor penalty, a fighting major and a game misconduct.
Adams will miss Thursday's Game 4 of the series...
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.

Hey...Hey...There's no hair-pulling in hockey except when the Philadelphia Flyers face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs.
Check out Pittsburgh's Craig Adams who decides to grab Scott Hartnell's curly locks during a fight in the third period:
The Flyers would win game three and take a three games to nothing series lead.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have played, by the admission of a lot of their beat writers, the worst hockey of the year at the worst possible time...A Friday 13th game ended 8-5 in favor of the Flyers for a 2-0 series lead. That led to today's game three and an, almost, identical result...The game completely degraded into what happened below with 5 minutes or so to go in regulation...
Coming into the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, there was a league wide consensus that the series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers would be one of the best series that the opening round had to offer.Even with all the lead up, what has unfolded in the first three games could not have been seen by anyone.Through three games there has been 32 goals scored...
from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, This probably is just the echo of the Child of the ’60s conspiracy-theorist rattling inside my brain, but is it wrong to wonder whether Gary Bettman’s campaign on behalf of Sidney Crosby amplified by a tribute to his “greatness” on Monday is part of an effort to co-opt No. 87 when the collective bargaining talks commence in earnest following...
After the mayhem that was game 3 the Penguins will be without 3 forwards tonight for a critical game 4.

Aaron Asham will be suspended for 4 games after...
Arron Asham should be gone for the rest of the NHL playoffs for this cross check and then punch on Brayden Schenn. There was nothing wrong with Schenn's hit on Paul Martin, yet Asham attacks Schenn.
Penguins forward James Neal should have been thrown out of the game for this questionable blindside on Sean Couturier. The refs really blew this call and their inaction probably...
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...
