Henrik Lundqvist fined $5,000 for spraying Sidney Crosby with water
Henrik Lundqvist was fined for spraying Sidney Crosby with water after all. The Rangers goalie was fined $5,000 on Monday.
Henrik Lundqvist was fined $5,000 by the NHL on Monday for unsportsmanlike conduct in Sunday's Game 6 against Pittsburgh.
The optics weren't good for the lack of any discipline considering Bruins forward Shawn Thornton was fined his maximum allowed on Sunday for squirting P.K. Subban with water. If one were subject to a fine and not the other, it wouldn't be a good look for the league considering they were similar (albeit not equal) offenses.
The discrepency in fines is related to their salaries. Since Lundqvist makes just a wee bit more than Thornton, he gets the max fine of $5,000 while Thornton's fine of $2,820.52 was the most he could be fined based on his salary.
