Habs' Manson suspended
NEW YORK - Defenseman Dave Manson of the Canadiens was suspended for three games and fined $1,000 by the NHL on Thursday, Oct. 29, 1998, for elbowing P.J. Axelsson of the Bruins. Manson was assessed a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct after hitting Axelsson in the second period of the game on Wednesday. ''Manson delivered a flagrant elbow to Axelsson's face,'' said Colin Campbell, the NHL's senior VP and director of hockey operations. ''Whether by elbow, stick or otherwise, the league will continue to punish players for deliberate blows to the head of an opponent.''
