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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
