Penguins' forward James Neal fined $2,500
NEW YORK -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for high-sticking Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban in NHL Game No. 331 Saturday night in Montreal, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 7:10 of the third period. A minor penalty for high-sticking was assessed on the play.

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

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
