Keith hit Carter with a one-handed blow in the second period of the Kings' 3-1 victory in Game 3, opening a 20-stitch gash on the star forward's face and cracking three of his teeth.

Keith's ungloved hand was nearly slashed by Carter an instant earlier. Keith got a double minor penalty, but the NHL's department of player safety followed up with a one-game ban for the dependable veteran who leads the Blackhawks in ice time.

Both teams went through practices Wednesday without knowing whether Keith would sit out when the Kings attempt to even the series.
