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.

The incident occurred at 12:09 of the third period of Colorado's 5-2 win on Saturday. Johnson was assessed a minor penalty for slashing.

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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
