Bruins' Thornton fined for squirting water from bench at Montreal's P.K. Subban

NEW YORK, - Boston forward Shawn Thornton was fined US$2,820.52 for unsportsmanlike conduct for an incident late in the Bruins' 4-2 playoff win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Thornton squirted water from Boston's bench at Montreal defenceman P.K. Subban in the final minute of the game.

No penalty was assessed on the play.

The fine is the maximum allowed under the league's collective bargaining agreement with the NHL Players' Association and the money will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
