Panthers’ Tkachuk suspended 2 games by NHL for high-sticking

NEW YORK (AP) — Florida forward Matthew Tkachuk was suspended for two games by the NHL on Sunday for high-sticking Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick. The play occurred with 38 seconds remaining in the third period of the Kings’ 5-4 win over the Panthers on Saturday night when Tkachuk jabbed Quick in the head after the goalie had made a save and covered up the puck. Tkachuk will miss the Panthers’ game at Anaheim later Sunday night, and against Carolina on Wednesday night.
