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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
