"Kris Versteeg has been suspended for one game and head coach Joel Quenneville fined $10,000"
i dont understant why guys who fight in the final minutes of the game get suspended...
could someone enlighten me?
Versteeg must have been the instigator, because AFAIK the suspension and fine are for instigating a fight with under 5:00 to play, not just for being in a fight. Like Chezz said, the NHL wants to avoid brawls late in games when the winner and loser are already clearly decided.
