Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal was handed a five-game suspension on Monday for kneeing Boston Bruins left winger Brad Marchand on Saturday night at TD Garden.

At 11:06 of the first period, Neal struck Marchand with his knee when Marchand was down on the ice. Marchand remained in the game.

 Neal was assessed a kneeing penalty for his hit on Marchand.

"I mean, what do you want me to say? That I was trying to hit him?" Neal said following the game. "No, I'm going by him. I don't get out of the way, like I said. I need to be more careful and I guess get my knee out of the way, but I'm not trying to hit him in the head or injure him or anything like that."

Neal will forfeit $128,205.15.
