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

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Boston forward Shawn Thornton was fined more than $2,800 for squirting water from the bench at Montreal defenceman P.K. Subban in the final minute of their playoff game.

Thornton's actions came in a 4-2 victory Saturday night that gave the Bruins a 3-2 lead in the second-round series. No penalty was assessed on the play.

The fine of $2,820.52 is the maximum allowed under the league's collective bargaining agreement with the union. The money goes to the players' emergency assistance fund.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
