Scott Walker has been fined $2,500 for his incident with Aaron Ward at 17:13 of last night’s third period. Walker will not be suspended for Game 6.
“We are satisfied with the league’s ruling,” said president and GM Jim Rutherford in a statement. “After our team received several punches throughout the series leading up to Game 5, it was a matter of time before one was going to be thrown back.”
According to Claude Julien, the Bruins are awaiting results on Ward’s left eye.
“I accept the league’s decision,” Walker said in a statement. “Based on what was said on the ice as I was dropping my gloves, it was my understanding that I was engaged in an altercation.”
