Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall was suspended by the NHL on Tuesday for Game 7 of the Red Wings' playoff series against Tampa Bay for charging Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov.
Kronwall knocked off Kucherov's helmet with the high hit late in the second period Monday night in Detroit in the Lightning's 5-2 victory in Game 6. Kucherov was able to play on.
Game 7 is Wednesday night at Tampa Bay.
