Lapointe hit Lukowich in the head in the third period of
Saturday's game, which Boston lost 4-2.
Lukowich lay on the ice for about a minute but stayed in the
game. Lapointe was given a five-minute match penalty, and his
suspension will cost him almost $28,000 in pay.
Lapointe might have needed the time off, anyway: He was
diagnosed with shingles, a virus that causes a painful rash.
