The Pittsburgh Penguins will be busy with Brendan Shanahan on Tuesday as forwards James Neal and Arron Asham have hearings booked with the NHL disciplinarian for incidents stemming from their game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

Neal will have two separate hearings - one for his third period hit on Flyers rookie Sean Couturier and the other for a hit to the head on Flyers forward Claude Giroux. Neal was given a charging penalty for the latter hit, which saw four players - including Neal - receive 10-minute misconduct penalties.

Neal, who shares the team lead in playoff scoring with two goals and five points - is a repeat offender. He was suspended two games last season for a hit from behind on Derek Dorsett and was fined $2,500 this season for a high-stick to Montreal's P.K. Subban.

Asham, who has been offered an in-person hearing, was assessed a first-period match penalty for cross-checking Brayden Schenn around the chin and punching him in the head when Schenn was down.
