Havlat hit Flyers' Recchi in face with stick
He will miss games against Buffalo on Saturday and Wednesday. He can return March 5 at Philadelphia.
Havlat was assessed a five-minute major for attempt to injure and a game misconduct during the third period of Thursday night's 1-1 tie.
"Someday someone's going to make him eat his lunch," Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock said after the game in Ottawa. "This is something in my opinion that the players should take care of."
Recchi agreed with his coach.
"He two-handed me across the face," Recchi said. "He's known for it. ... It might not come from our team, but he better protect himself."
Havlat was apologetic and said he never meant to hit Recchi in the face.
"I don't feel good about what I did," he said. "I was getting frustrated with all the hooking going on before that. I wanted to hit him, but not in the face. It was a bad decision."
