Pierre-Edouard Bellemare suspended for Game 4

Flyers forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare has been suspended one game for his check from behind on Dmitry Orlov in Monday night's Game 3 loss to the Capitals.

It was the hit that started it all for the Flyers, coming at 12:17 of the third period. Bellemare was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct. Ryan White and Radko Gudas each got 10-minute misconducts from the scrum that followed.

The Capitals scored once during the five-minute power play and added another power-play goal on a 5-on-3 created by a bench minor delay of game penalty on the spectators. 

Video of the incident is below.

The Flyers and Capitals face off in Game 4 on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. from Wells Fargo Center.
