Penguins winger James Neal has been fined $5,000 for cross-checking Detroit's Luke Glendening.

The incident happened in the second period of Thursday's 5-4 Red Wings overtime win. Neal was assessed a minor penalty on the play.

Later in the third period, Detroit's David Legwand was given a major penalty and a game misconduct for butt-ending Penguins center Evgeni Malkin. Legwand, like Neal, received a $5,000 fine from the NHL.
