I also think Haley will be picking-splinters for several games, too, for that very act
the refs had their hands full, but they definitely could have done a better job

this was just an all around ugly game and all this over what(dipietro losing a fight)?
the islanders moved near the top of my most hated teams list very quickly

Bylsma fined, suspended pending review - 02-11-11
Friday, February 11, 2011 11:46 PM

As if things couldn't have gone worse for the Penguins tonight, it now turns out Dan Bylsma will be automatically suspended and fined $10,000 by the NHL for Eric Godard leaving the bench in the second period of tonight's game.

Godard was assessed two game misconducts when he left the bench to fight Islanders forward Michael Haley in the second period when Haley attacked Penguins goaltender Brent Johnson.

Per Rule 70.10 of the NHL's rule book:

"The Coach(es) of the team(s) whose player(s) (including goalkeepers) left the players’ bench(es) or penalty bench(es)during an altercation shall be suspended, pending a review by the Commissioner. The Coach(es) also will be fined a maximum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000)."

Godard is expected to be suspended 10 games for his actions.

DISCIPLINE FOR PENS AND ISLES NOT EXPECTED UNTIL TONIGHT
TSN.CA STAFF
2/12/2011 3:29:19 PM
http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=353548

Any supplementary discipline resulting from Friday's fight-filled game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders will likely not be levied until tonight.

The NHL is taking time today to break down the tape of Friday night's 9-3 win by the Islanders, which featured several fights and over 300 minutes in penalties.

Islanders forwards Matt Martin, Trevor Gillies and Zenon Konopka are scheduled for in-person meetings with the NHL to discuss their roles in the contest.

The meetings are expected to take place at 5pm et at the Islanders team hotel in Buffalo. The Islanders take the ice against the Sabres Sunday afternoon.

In-person hearings allow for suspensions of six or more games, but no suspension also remains a possibility.

Konopka could be facing a potential violation of rule 70.2, which involves coming onto ice on a legal change for purposes of starting an altercation.

Penguins' Eric Godard will receive an automatic 10-game suspension for coming off bench to fight, when he rushed to the defence of goaltender Brent Johnson.

Godard's actions carry a team fine, but not an automatic suspension for Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma.

The fight-filled game took place nine days after Johnson knocked out Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro, causing broken bones in his face during a 3-0 Penguins victory.

Head coach Dan Bylsma

On Tangradi
:
"Tangradi will not be able to go tomorrow."

On the cab rides
:
"It was quite a sight. I think the gentleman involved in the accident backed off a little bit when he saw a whole hockey team get out with sticks and gloves in their hands. If he had known anything about last night, maybe that's why he backed off.

On Godard leaving the bench:
"We have a situation where I did say, 'Don't go.' I don't have my hands on every player on the bench. Everyone kind of stood up and your natural reaction, I actually said don't go."

On if he weren't able to coach a game:
"I have not spoken with the league in this point in time. ... Todd Reirden runs the defense during the game. Tony (Granato) is at my side running the forwards. He would take over that responsibility if the coach (wasn't available)."

Eric Godard

On anything was said before he left the bench
:
No one said anything. There was all that stuff going down in the corner. Max got in a fight with Haley. I rememer seeing him skating towards the penalty box. I looked down at the pile again. I heard commotion and saw him skating towards Johnny. I just jumped and went after him. ... I saw him skating towards Johnny and I just kind of went.

On the automatic 10-game suspension:
I'm aware of the rule, but at the time I'm not thinking about it.

On regrets:
We're in a tough spot right now with a lot of guys out. Yes I regret it. But no, I'm going to try to defend my teammates. I'm kind of torn with that.

Maxime Talbot

On his scrum with Martin:
I was surprised.

On what started the sequence:
There was no talk. It was probably my hit on Comeau, which I did not get a penalty on.

On ever experiencing anything like what Martin did:
No, my first time. ... You never expect to get grabbed from behind and punched like that. I'm not a guy that would stand down if someone comes to my face and asks me.

6:08 PM:
Coach Bylsma announced that Eric Tangradi, who left the game against the Islanders, will not play Sunday afternoon against the Rangers. Thus, the Pens recalled Tim Wallace from WBS.

NHL levies suspensions to Penguins and Isles
Saturday, 02.12.2011 / 11:44 PM / News NHL.com
http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=552570

The National Hockey League has suspended Pittsburgh's Eric Godard for 10 games, while Trevor Gillies of the New York Islanders received a nine-game suspension and Isles forward Matt Martin drew a four-game suspension for their actions during Friday's game on Long Island.

The disciplinary actions were announced by NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell following in-person hearings with the Islanders on Saturday evening in Buffalo, where the Isles play Sunday afternoon.

Godard drew an automatic 10-game suspension under Rule 70.11 for coming off the bench to become involved in a third-period fight after New York's Michael Haley squared off with Penguins goaltender Brent Johnson. Godard received a double minor for roughing and a double game misconduct.

Gillies was suspended for leveling Pittsburgh's Eric Tangradi with an elbow and throwing several punches to his head in an incident that led to the Haley-Johnson fight, earning a major penalty and a game misconduct. Tangradi left the game with concussion symptoms.

Martin was suspended as a result of delivering several punches from behind to an unsuspecting opponent, the Penguins' Max Talbot, during the second period. He received a major for fighting and a game misconduct.

Gillies will lose $24,193.53 in salary; Martin will forfeit $41,585.36 as a repeat offender; and Godard will lose $40,322.25.

"The actions by the Islanders' Gillies and Martin were deliberate attempts to injure by delivering blows to the head of players who were unsuspecting and unable to defend themselves," Campbell said in a statement issued by the NHL. "The message should be clear to all players: targeting the head of an opponent by whatever means will be dealt with by suspension.

"With respect to the Godard suspension, there can be no circumstance that allows for a player to leave his bench for the purpose of coming to the aid of a teammate."

The Islanders were also fined $100,000.

"The Islanders also must bear some responsibility for their failure to control their players," Campbell added.

The Islanders won 9-3 in a game that saw 346 penalty minutes, 15 fighting majors and 21 misconducts.

Pens on their way to an outdoor practice yesterday in NYC. The bus got into an accident and they had to go by taxi (in their gear and all).
