PHILADELPHIA -- Right winger James Neal has been suspended for Game 4 of the Penguins' first-round playoff series against Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center Wednesday night.
Winger Arron Asham, who received a match penalty during the Penguins' 8-4 loss in Game 3 Sunday, has been suspended for four games.
That means Asham would not be eligible to return in Round 1, even if the Penguins would take it to the seven-game limit.
Earlier, the NHL declined to rescind an automatic one-game suspension winger Craig Adams was assessed Sunday, so the Penguins will be without three regular forwards when they try to stave off elimination in Game 4.
