Pavel Kubina Suspended Three Games

TORONTO – Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Pavel Kubina has been suspended for three games and will forfeit $60,096.76 for delivering an elbow to the head of Chicago Blackhawks forward David Bolland in NHL game #1005, the National Hockey League announced today.

The incident occurred at 2:09 of the first period. No penalty was assessed on the play.

His fine is based on his average annual salary and is calculated under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Kubina will miss the Lightning’s next three games – Mar. 11 against Ottawa, Mar. 12 at Florida and Mar. 14 at Toronto. He is eligible to return Mar. 17 at Montreal.

i couldn't find a video on youtube, so i've only seen it once or twice, but i thought the hit was pretty dirty when i first saw it. got his elbow up pretty good, square into the back of Bolland's head.

that said i don't think it was "three games" dirty. i'm more pissed that no one did anything about it.

oh, and in before the Chara crowd.

He was about to miss the hit as Bolland stopped and threw the elbow up to try to compensate it looked like, definitely a dirty hit.

About time the league got something right, before we go there only kidding. Didn't even see it and do not care to.

I remember seeing this elbow live. No penalty....but I see the NHL is trying to do damage control after the Chara no-suspension.

He had his elbows high, and bumped the back of the helmet. If his last name was Chara it would be 0. Instead its 3, in the middle of the race for first place.

Clearly an elbow, dont know about a three gamer.
Maybe the can dissqualify the BS OT goal from St Louis too.

It was definitely a good elbow to Davey's melon. Kubina should have just went flying bye, instead of missing the body contact and flinging the elbow up to catch him with something.

That was clearly not a goal. I dont know what most people are thinking when they say thats a legit goal. The puck stopped!

Should have been a penalty, but it wasn't worth of a suspension.

Weak. The NHL is consistently inconsistent. I worry that this league will be folded up in about 5 years. The more negative press they get the worse the situation will get.

I miss the 1990's.
