NEW YORKBoston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference has been fined $2,500 for an obscene gesture made during Game 4 of the team's Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series with the Montreal Canadiens Thursday night at the Bell Centre.

The incident was reviewed by NHL Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy. The fine was levied for violation of Rule 75.5 (ii) of the National Hockey League's Official Rules. No penalty was assessed for the infraction.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
