Chiarelli: Lucic fined, not suspended for incident
Following a disciplinary hearing with the NHL, Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli has been informed by the league that forward Milan Lucic will not be suspended for his role in an incident in Boston's game against the Atlanta Thrashers on Dec. 23, according to the Bruins.

Chiarelli released the following statement Sunday afternoon regarding the NHL's decision:

"The NHL has informed us that Milan will not be suspended as a result of the match penalty assessed to him during our game against the Thrashers last Thursday. He will be fined $2,500 for the punch thrown in the scrum and $1,000 for making an obscene gesture directed at the Thrashers bench. He will join the team on the flight to Florida and be available for Monday’s game against the Panthers."
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
