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

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.
