Penguins' Kunitz to be fined for cross-checking goalie
Share with others:
Penguins left winger Chris Kunitz will be fined, but not suspended, for a cross-check to the head of Washington goalie Simeon Varlamov late in the Capitals' 4-3 victory in Game 2 of their second-round playoff series at the Verizon Center last night.
Kunitz had a telephone hearing with Colin Campbell, the NHL's director of hockey operations, today.
The amount of his fine was not immediately known.
Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau described Kunitz' cross-check as "pretty vicious" after Game 2, and left winger Alex Ovechkin labeled it a "cheap shot" following Washington's practice today.
