NEW YORKNew Jersey Devils forward Patrik Elias has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for boarding Montreal Canadiens forward Mike Blunden in NHL Game No. 755 in Newark on Thursday, Feb. 2, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 18:54 of the first period. A minor penalty for boarding was assessed on the play.

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

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.

— Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper on his team's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3 on Sunday
