Sabres' Ray suspended four games
Tues. Dec. 1, 1998.
NEW YORK - Sabres enforcer Rob Ray had his suspension increased to four games on Tuesday for slew-footing Florida left wing Alex Hicks on Saturday. Ray already sat out Sunday's 6-3 win at Tampa Bay and was fined the maximum $1,000 before NHL senior vice president and director of hockey operations Colin Campbell increased the suspension Monday, following a telephone hearing. The right wing received an attempt-to-injure match penalty in the third period after flipping Hicks backward onto the ice by kicking his feet out from under him in the 6-2 defeat.
