NHL suspends Islanders' Colin McDonald 2 games

The NHL has suspended Islanders forward Colin McDonald for two games after a boarding incident.

With just over a minute left in the second period of the Islanders' 4-1 win Tuesday in Pittsburgh, McDonald drove Penguins defenceman Ben Lovejoy into the end boards from behind.

McDonald received a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct on the play.

McDonald will forfeit $7,567.56 US in salary. He will miss a home-and-home series against New Jersey and will be eligible to return Tuesday when the Islanders host Pittsburgh.
