Asham has been suspended four games for his cross-check and punches to the head of Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. He will not play again in the opening round and with the Pens being down 3-0, Asham's season is likely over.
Of the four players dealing with significant injuries, winger Arron Asham appears to be the only one with a good chance of getting into the lineup during the trip that begins tonight with a game at American Airlines Center and includes a visit Saturday to Denver.
Asham practiced yesterday and is certainly an option for tonight's game. Through 45 games, the rugged winger scored two goals and nine assists with 57 PIM.
