TORONTO (AP) - The NHL has suspended Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Pavel Kubina for three games for delivering an elbow to the head of Chicago's Dave Bolland.

Kubina also was fined $60,096.76, a total based on his average annual salary.

The elbowing incident occurred 2:09 into Wednesday night's game in Tampa. The Lightning won 4-3 in overtime.

Kubina is eligible to return March 17 against Montreal. He will miss games against Ottawa, Florida and Toronto.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
