Letang Suspended For Tonight's Game
NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has suspended Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang for one game for an illegal hit on Washington's Marcus Johansson. Letang will miss tonight's Game 4 after the NHL Department of Player Safety ruled Tuesday that Letang made "significant head contact" on Johansson well after the Capitals forward had released the puck during a sequence in the first period during Pittsburgh's 3-2 win in the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday night. Johansson was carrying the puck into the Pittsburgh zone when he made a pass to the boards as four Penguins converged on him. Letang drilled Johansson in the upper body. The forward briefly left the game before returning.

Here's the remaining schedule:

Game 4: Tonight, 8 pm, at CONSOL Energy Center (NBCSN)
Game 5: Saturday, 7:15 pm, at Verizon Center (TBD)
Game 6*: Tuesday (5/10), TBD, at CONSOL Energy Center (TBD)
Game 7*: Thursday (5/12), TBD, at Verizon Center (TBD)

Cubs Beat The Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ben Zobrist hit a three-run home run, Anthony Rizzo also connected and Jon Lester worked out of a pair of jams to lead the Chicago Cubs over the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 Wednesday for a three-game sweep. Zobrist's third-inning homer put Chicago ahead after center fielder Andrew McCutchen dropped Rizzo's two-out liner for an error. With its seventh win in eight games, Chicago improved to a major league-best 20-6. The Cubs has won seven straight road games and completed their first sweep in Pittsburgh since Sept. 7-9, 2012. They lead second-place Pittsburgh by six games in the NL Central. Lester (3-1) scattered eight hits in 5 2/3 scoreless innings, struck out five and walked two. The left-hander has allowed one run or none in five of six starts this season.

Virus Could Wipe Out Trip To Puerto Rico
MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that there's a very good chance the Miami Marlins' two-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Puerto Rico will not be held there because of concerns about the Zika virus. Player representative Tom Koehler says Marlins players attended a seminar on Zika that heightened concerns about playing the games in San Juan on May 30-31. Koehler added that an announcement regarding those games is expected by the end of the week.
