Bruins’ Lucic fined for throwing punch

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has been fined $2,500 for
throwing a punch at Atlanta Thrashers defenseman Freddy Meyer.

The Bruins said on their website Sunday that Milan also will be
fined $1,000 for his obscene gesture at the Thrashers bench.
General manager Peter Chiarelli says Milan was to join the team on
the Sunday flight to Florida and be available for Monday’s game
against the Panthers.

In the Thrashers-Bruins game Thursday, defenseman Andrew Ference
jumped Atlanta’s Freddy Meyer after he took out Lucic with a high
hit. Ference left his gloves behind as he charged Meyer for a fight
that sparked several others.
