NHL slaps Leafs' Lupul with fine for cross-checking Red Wings' Eaves

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs aren't going to lose forward Joffrey Lupul to a suspension.

The NHL slapped Lupul with a $10,000 US fine Friday for his hit on Detroit forward Patrick Eaves in Toronto's 3-2 shootout win over the Red Wings at the Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium on Wednesday.

Lupul was assessed a cross-checking minor in the first period after the hit against Eaves, who didn't return to the game.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
