Ducks F Ryan suspended 2 games for kicking
The incident occurred at 16:35 of the third period Friday night. No penalty was assessed on the play.
NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell called Ryan's actions ''reckless and dangerous.'' Blum was not injured on the play, but Campbell said it is ''unacceptable'' for a player to use his skate in such a manner.
Ryan scored twice in the 5-3 victory to help Anaheim even the series against the Predators at a game apiece. Ryan is eligible to come back in Game 5 Friday at Anaheim.
