Horton fined $2,500 for Game 6 incident
Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told the media that forward Nathan Horton was fined for squirting fans in Tampa and throwing a water bottle into the crowd
Game 7 hero Nathan Horton paid a price for squirting fans in Tampa and throwing a water bottle into the crowd at the St. Pete Times Forum after Boston's 5-4 loss to the Lightning in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston GM Peter Chiarelli told the media that Horton was fined for the incident. He didn't say how much, but media reports indicate it was $2,500.

"You know that's an unfortunate incident. I didn't really focus on it and I didn't talk to Nathan about it," Chiarelli said Saturday afternoon. "He has been fined, so that issue has been resolved."

There was no hearing with the League prior to the disciplinary action.
