Kings’ Blake Suspended Two Games
NEW YORK (AP) _ Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Blake was suspended for two games and fined $128,475.60 Friday by the NHL for cross-checking to the head of San Jose’s Alexander Korolyuk.
The incident occurred in Thursday’s game at Los Angeles and resulted in a minor penalty for Blake. The suspension will sideline him for games Sunday at Dallas and Monday at Nashville. He will be eligible to return Thursday against Anaheim.
Blake, who was suspended for three games for slashing in December, was fined under the league’s repeat offender category, which assesses 1-82nd of a player’s salary for each day suspended.
