The Department of Player Safety has handed down fines to Washington Capitals forward Garnet Hathaway and Tampa Bay Lightning forward Pat Maroon.

Maroon has been fined $2,702.70 and Hathaway has been fined $4,054.05, both the maximum allowable under the CBA, for unsportsmanlike conduct during last night's game.
Things kicked off after Nicolas Aube-Kubel was ejected early in the second period after a bad hit on Lightning defenseman Cal Foote.
Aube-Kubel landed the hit as Foote was carrying the puck and dumping the puck into the offensive zone. Aube-Kubel's shoulder connected directly with Foote's face. Play was whistled down immediately as Foote laid on the ice. Shortly after the hit, a dazed Foote got up under his own power, bleeding from the nose. He was immediately taken down the tunnel and to the Lightning's locker room.
Aube-Kubel was initially given a major penalty for an illegal check to the head. As officials reviewed view on the ice to make sure Aube-Kubel did make head contact, chaos erupted on the ice among the players remaining on the ice. Garnet Hathaway dropped the gloves with Pat Maroon as other players grabbed onto each other.
Hathaway and Foote were given five-minute majors for fighting and 10-minute misconducts.
Washington was able to secure the two points with a 5-1 victory on Friday night. The two teams can revisit the hostilities on Sunday when they play again.
I think it's going to be the same,» said Kevin McCarthy, who coached the Capitals in Peter Laviolette's absence. When you play a team back to back, there's always something that carries over from the previous game. Especially the way the game went tonight, it was physical on both sides and we expect that again.

One thing's for certain, the rematch tomorrow will be a must watch.
