Mats has brain cramp

TORONTO (CP) Captain Mats Sundin of the Toronto Maple Leafs may have escaped a penalty for throwing his broken stick into the stands Tuesday night but the NHL punished him a day later.

The league has suspended the superstar centre for one game for his bizarre stick-throwing incident in the second period of Tuesday night's 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators.

"Regardless of whether Mr. Sundin may have been overcome by the frustration or emotion of the moment, there is no way the league can tolerate his reaction," Colin Campbell, the NHL's executive vice-president and director of hockey operations, said in a statement Wednesday.

Sundin, who earns $9 million US a season, will lose $47,685.19 for the one-game ban. More importantly, the Leafs will be without their top scorer for Thursday night's much-anticipated tilt with the rival Ottawa Senators.
