The NHL┬ácame down hard late┬áSaturday night on two Islanders deemed to be instigators in Friday’s fight-filled 9-3 pummeling of the Penguins.

Trevor Gillies earned a nine-game suspension for an elbow to Eric Tangradi’s head during a third-period melee, and Matt Martin was slapped with a four-game ban for ambushing Pittsburgh’s Max Talbot from behind in the neutral zone to ignite the first scrum in the second period.

Gillies continued punching Tangradi after drilling him with his elbow, and then he appeared to taunt the Pens rookie as Tangradi, whom the Pens claim suffered a concussion, lay prone on the ice.
