NEW YORK, N.Y. - Boston forward Milan Lucic has been fined $5,000 for spearing Detroit defenceman Danny DeKeyser during their opening playoff game.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
