Anxiously awating the indignation from some Pens fans here. Both suspensions will likely be less than they should get. Neal with 5 as a multiple time offender for his assault was weak. He should have been in the 8-10 range.

It is a very bad reflection if this is the case. Then again, his slewfoot to Marchand has been referred to as a bodycheck.

Bet the interns post this story again this afternoon/evening after the suspension is announced. They'll post the suspension story on Sunday or Monday.
