Flames F Bourque suspended 2 games for hit

NEW YORK (AP) - Calgary forward Rene Bourque was suspended by the NHL for two games without pay because he hit Chicago's Brent Seabrook from behind in Sunday's game.

The league says Bourque will lose just over $36,000 for the hit he made at 15:25 of the first period. He got a five-minute major and a game misconduct on the play.

He will be able to return Friday at Vancouver.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
