NHL fines Rangers goalie Lundqvist $5,000

Penguins/NHL Videos

Monday, May 12, 2014, 9:18 p.m.
 

Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist fined $5,000 by the NHL for squirting Penguins center Sidney Crosby with his water bottle during Game 6.

The incident occurred at the second period's conclusion. During a scrum in front of New York's net, Lundqvist squirted Crosby with water for an extended period of time.

Twenty-four hours earlier, Bruins right wing Shawn Thornton was fined $2,820.52 for squirting water from the bench into the face of Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban. Lundqvist's fine was steeper because his base salary is considerably higher than Thornton's.

The Penguins and Rangers play Game 7 of their series on Tuesday at Consol Energy Center.
