NHL fines Lightning’s Ryan McDonagh, Pat Maroon
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh and forward Pat Maroon are a bit lighter in the wallet following their actions in Game 5 of their first-round series against the Florida Panthers on Monday.
The NHL Department of Player Safety announced Tuesday that McDonagh received a $5,000 fine for a cross-check on Panthers forward Mason Marchment during the first period. The league also announced Maroon was docked $3,879.31 for unsportsmanlike conduct late in the third period of Florida’s 4-1 win.
Both fines are the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement.Also Read:

Tampa Bay holds a 3-2 edge in the series. Game 6 is Wednesday night in Tampa, Fla.
