Trevor Gillies suspended

March 2, 2011

In his first game back from a nine-game suspension for his role in a wild brawl with the Penguins on Feb. 11, the Islanders' roughneck used his forearm to drive the head of Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck into the glass. Gillies was given a five-minute checking-from-behind penalty and ejected. He later received another 10-game ban, moving even commentator Mike Milbury, who had criticized the NHL for going to "namby-pamby land" by penalizing brutal hits, to say, "This is a guy that crosses the line and doesn't know what's appropriate and what's inappropriate behavior in a hockey game."
