League fines Wings\' Legwand, Pens\' Neal


DETROIT – Red Wings center David Legwand and Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal each received $5,000 fines for their actions during Detroit’s 5-4 overtime win Thursday, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety has announced.

Neal was assessed a two-minute minor penalty for cross-checking Red Wings center Luke Glendening at 5:19 of the second period.

With the scored tied 4-4, Legwand was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for butt-ending Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin at 16:14 of the third period.

The Red Wings managed to kill off the five-minute penalty, including the final 1:14 to start overtime.

“Our penalty kill guys did an amazing job for us and they deserve like a big-time standing ovation,” Wings forward Tomas Tatar said. “They pretty much helped give us the two points.”

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
