NEW YORK -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams has been suspended by the NHL for Game 4 of their playoff series against Philadelphia for instigating a fight.

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma also was fined $10,000 on Monday for the same fight. Adams went after Flyers forward Scott Hartnell late in the third period of Game 3. Hartnell was involved in an altercation with Sidney Crosby when Adams intervened. He yanked Hartnell's hair and the two started fighting.

Adams was assessed a minor penalty for instigating, a major penalty for fighting and a game misconduct.

The Flyers lead the best-of-seven series 3-0 entering Wednesday's Game 4 in Philadelphia.
