Blues' Lapierre Suspended For Hit

The NHL is suspending St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre pending an in-person hearing for his hit that left San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle in a hospital. The date and time of Lapierre's hearing has yet to be determined. Boyle was kept overnight at a St. Louis hospital after being checked into the boards from behind during Tuesday night's game. Lapierre drove his stick into Boyle's upper back, sending him face-first into the glass. Boyle says he is okay and will continue further evaluation in San Jose. Lapierre was given a five-minute major for checking from behind, a fighting major for an ensuing fracas and was ejected from the game. The Sharks beat the Blues, 6-2.
