Chris Pronger will be suspended for Game 4 of the NHL Finals for administering a blow to the head of Ottawa winger Dean McAmmond, who may also miss Game 4 with lingering wooziness. It is the second suspension of the playoffs for Pronger, who left Detroit's Tomas Holmstrom bloody on the ice after smashing his head into a wall.
The NHL has cracked down on violence, and Pronger feels the new rules may make him a dinosaur, saying, "I don't think I can make wholesale changes and still be the type of player I can be." Anaheim leads the series 2-1. Pronger is second among all defensemen in the playoffs with 14 points.
