Downie and Kunitz handed one-game bans for head shots

Kunitz was banned for elbowing Lightning forward Simon Gagne during Monday's game while Downie earned his suspension for leaving his feet to deliver a crushing hit on the Penguins' Ben Lovejoy.

Both players were assessed minor penalties.

The two players will serve their suspensions when the best-of-seven series, which Pittsburgh leads 2-1, resumes Wednesday in Tampa, Florida.
