Avs defenceman Erik Johnson suspended 2 games for slashing Islanders forward Frans Nielsen

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Colorado Avalanche defenceman Erik Johnson has been suspended by the NHL for two games without pay on Tuesday for slashing New York Islanders forward Frans Nielsen.

It was Colorado's last game before the Olympic break. The Avs' next game will be Feb. 26 against Los Angeles.

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
