Watch: Max Lapierre suspended five games

St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre was suspended for five games for boarding San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle.

Lapierre will forefit $28,205.15 of his salary.

He was given a game misconduct for hitting Boyle from behind in the first period of San Jose's 6-2 road win Tuesday. Boyle was knocked out on the play and taken off the ice on a stretcher before spending the night in a hospital.
