Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang was suspended two games without pay for his boarding hit on Winnipeg Jets forward Alex Burmistrov on Monday night.

In a video explaining the ruling, NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan said the NHL took into account Letang's previous fine for a similar hit in April 2011. You can watch the video here (courtesy of NHL.com):
