The NHL fined Bruins forward Brad Marchand $2,500 Monday for slew-footing Penguins defenseman Matt Niskanen last Monday in Pittsburgh.
Marchand slew-footed Niskanen at 3:19 of the first period of the Bruins' victory, and immediately dropped the gloves with the defenseman for his second fight of the season. In addition to his fighting major, Marchand received a tripping minor.
This is the first time Marchand has been fined this season. He was suspended last season for elbowing Blue Jackets' forward R.J. Umberger in the head.
