NEW YORK - Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig was suspended for two games Saturday by the NHL for boarding Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinal series.

Bollig received a minor penalty for boarding in the second period of Chicago's 4-2 road loss Friday night.

Ballard sustained an upper-body injury on the hit and didn't travel to Chicago for Game 5 on Sunday night.

The series is tied 2-2.
