The Penguins will get their day in court (or whatever shanty operation Brendan Shanahan is running). The NHL has announced that James Neal will have hearings tomorrow with Shanahan’s Department of Player Safety for both his hit on Sean Couturier and his elbow on Claude Giroux. 

In addition, Arron Asham will have an in-person hearing for his cross-check on Brayden Schenn. 

Somehow, Craig Adams appears to have avoided a hearing despite doing this to Scott Hartnell. But, according to league rules, he should be suspended for getting an instigator penalty in the final five minutes.

View all of the suspendable acts here.

    Adams is getting the automatic 1 game suspension that comes with the match penalty and Bylsma is getting the fine

    Adams does not need a hearing…his suspension is automatic.
    Only way that does not happen is if the NHL takes the suspension back.
    Like they did the year the Pens won the Cup when Malkin was given a match late in game 2 vs Detroit.

    Asham that Mr. Miyagi looking mutha f*cker should get at least 5 games. Hopefully he play game 4 though because he flat out sucks. always disliked him & his face to hate when he played for the flyers

    If they both get suspended, maybe they’ll call up Steve McIntyre. Oh I’d like a run at that skirt.

    Neal won’t get anything.

    Neal is a made man, he’s not getting pinched for any games. Asham will take the heat
