Blues' Maxim Lapierre suspended 5 games for boarding Sharks' Dan Boyle

NEW YORK, N.Y. - St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre was suspended for five games without pay by the NHL on Friday for boarding San Jose Sharks defenceman Dan Boyle on Tuesday night.

Lapierre was assessed a major penalty for checking from behind and a game misconduct in the first period of the Blues' 6-2 home loss. He served the first game of the suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing Friday.

The suspension will cost Lapierre $28,205.

Boyle was knocked out on the play, taken off the ice on a stretcher and spent the night in a hospital. He missed the Sharks' 4-3 shootout loss in Dallas on Thursday night.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
