Kostopoulos suspended three games
MONTREAL - The NHL has suspended Tom Kostopoulos for three games following Saturday's incident at the Air Canada Centre.

The Habs forward released the following statement:

"First and foremost, I sincerely regret the injuries suffered by Mike Van Ryn. This is an unfortunate turn of events. I was just trying to get in on the forecheck and get the puck. I didn’t anticipate him turning and couldn’t stop. I was trying to finish my check and obviously it did not end up well. I never intend on injuring another player. I feel bad. I hope he is going to be all right and resume playing as quickly as possible."
