(Reuters) - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams was suspended one game and head coach Dan Bylsma fined $10,000 on Monday for incidents that occurred during Game Three of their Eastern Conference quarter-final with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Adams was banned for instigating a fight late in the third period of Sunday’s 8-4 loss. He was assessed a minor penalty, a fighting major and a game misconduct.

Adams will miss Game Four of the best-of-seven series on Wednesday in Philadelphia. The Flyers lead the series 3-0.
