    The NHL plans to hold two separate hearings for two Penguins players due to their actions during the Flyers’ Game 3 win on Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

    The Daily News reports the hearings are scheduled on Tuesday for Penguins forward James Neal and Penguins forward Aaron Asham.

    Neal’s hearing will address his hits on Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier. While Neal received a charging penalty for his hit on Giroux during the game, he did not receive a penalty for his hit on Couturier.

    Asham, who played with the Flyers for two years, cross-checked and then punched Brayden Schenn which earned him a match penalty.

    Neal and Asham could possibly be suspended, according to the Daily News. The Daily News also reports Penguins forward Craig Adams is facing an automatic suspension for an instigator penalty, though the league could waive it after an investigation.

    Game 4 of the series takes place Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers have a 3-0 lead and can win the series with a Game 4 victory.
