Bruins' Brad Marchand, Derek Forbort Fined For Actions During Game 2 Loss In Carolina

BOSTON (CBS) -- Wednesday night's Game 2 loss for the Bruins involved a whole lot of physicality. That's going to cost a couple of Bruins some money.

The NHL department of player safety reviewed the game and levied fines against left winger Brad Marchand and defenseman Derek Forbort $5,000 apiece for their actions during the game.

Marchand earned his $5,000 fine for slashing goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov late in the second period. Both Marchand and Kochetkov were assessed slashing minors, but only Marchand drew the supplemental discipline.

Marchand -- who's been suspended by the NHL on eight occasions -- has now been fined six times during his career.

Forbort's incident took place early in the third period, when he swung his stick with one arm at Teuvo Teravainen and hit the Hurricanes winger in the face.

Forbort was assessed a double-minor for the play in the game.

The fines for Marchand and Forbort were the maximum allowable amount under the rules of the collective-bargaining agreement.
