Godard suspended for high-sticking incident

Associated Press

TORONTO -- Islanders forward Eric Godard was suspended for one game by the NHL on Thursday for high-sticking Ottawa's Chris Neil during their playoff opener.

He will miss Game 2 of the first-round series in Ottawa on Saturday.

With 32 seconds left in the Islanders' 3-0 victory Wednesday night, Godard was assessed a double minor for high-sticking. Neil had hit Islanders star Alexei Yashin earlier in the game.
