The Nashville Predators have suspended Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn for Game 3 against the Phoenix Coyotes.
General manager David Poile said Tuesday that the suspension was in response to a rules violation by the players.
"The Nashville Predators have a few simple rules centered around doing the right things," Poile said in a statement. "We have always operated with a team-first mentality and philosophy. Violating team rules is not fair to our team and their teammates."
The Predators are facing the Coyotes in Nashville on Wednesday night for Game 3. Phoenix holds a 2-0 series lead.
