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.
