Pronger suspended for Game 4
Here's what Anaheim general manager Brian Burke said about the decision: "We disagree completely with Colin Campbell's decision here. But we respect the process. ... I think at no point is Holmstrom's face facing the boards. At no point is Chris (Pronger) delivering a hit towards the boards, a dangerous hit. He's coming in to finish a check at a 45-degree angle."
Burke went on to talk about Pronger's reaction: "He's sour about it. that's why he's not talking to you guys (media). The league doesn't like us swearing. I don't want Chris to talk to anyone today."
Holmstrom on the play: "You're around the net … 5-0 … they're going to get frustrated. They have to do something. Stuff happens out there. But those head shots, you've got to take them away from the game. ... Who knows? If I get a concussion or can't play any more in the series, maybe it's more. That was probably fortunate for him."
Babcock on the suspension: "Well, I told you, Tomas is a tough guy. Everybody saw it. He's got cuts, he's got 13 stitches. It's not like it's a boo‑boo here we're talking about. This is a guy who wants to play, and we're about playing.
"If you think there was any thought process into, Oh, how can we milk this? That's not how it works. I said already, I don't believe that's how the league should work. Did you do something? Did you not do something? Make a decision. The league did. We're fine by it. Let's go. "
