Tampa Bay Lightning's Mattias Ritola receives two-game suspension

Tampa Bay Lightning left wing Mattias Ritola was suspended two games by the NHL for his hit Wednesday on the Islanders' Matt Moulson.

Ritola left his feet to check Moulson from behind into the side boards at Nassau Coliseum and elbowed Moulson in the back of the head.

Also, defenseman Matt Roy and center James Wright were recalled from AHL Norfolk. Roy likely was called up because of an injury to defenseman Victor Hedman, who missed the first six-plus minutes of Wednesday's second period with an upper body injury.
