Caps Donald Brashear Suspended Six Games

April 27, 2009 | Ed Frankovic

Washington Capitals Forward Donald Brashear has been suspended 6 games for his actions before and during Game 5 on Sunday. Here is the NHL write-up on the suspension:

Comment: It looks like Chris Clark will play on Tuesday night in Game 7. I was surprised at the five games for his hit but the league is focused on head shots and #87 struck Blair Betts from behind in an unsuspecting manner. The fact that Betts is injured significantly likely played into the length of the suspension.
