Two of Lev Prague’s forwards, Michal Birner and Jiri Novotny, were seen to make inappropriate gestures at spectators in Bratislava’s Slovnaft Arena following Sunday night’s Game 3 of the Western Conference semi-final series between Lev and Donbass Donetsk. The KHL Disciplinary Committee has upheld the referee’s decision to punish Novotny with a game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) and has imposed the same sanction on Birner for the same offense, that of directing an abusive gesture at another person. In addition, both players receive an automatic one-game ban.
