Lucic was fined $5,000 for intentionally spearing Dekeyser in the crotch. Quenneville was fined $25,000 for grabbing his own. NHL discipline at its finest.

Jozy Altidore draws a penalty and Liverpool loanee Fabio Borini puts the PK past backup keeper Mark Schwarzer to hand Mourinho his first Premier League home loss in four seasons of bossing Chelsea. Angry Mourinho congratulates referees.

I believe $5000 is the max a player can be fined, per the CBA. Coaches have no such protections...

I don't understand why that should merit a fine. Lucic was doing DeKeyser a favor by making sure DeK's cup was being worn correctly.

Second time Lucic has done this during this season. Perhaps opponents might begin looking over their shoulder when he is behind them. It could also cause some rather odd skating as players try to skate with their knees clamped together.

It appears that wide receiver Chad Johnson, aka Chad Ocho Cinco has signed to play with the Montreal Alouettes in the coming season. Does this mean he wiil be forced to change his name to Chad Quatre Vingt Cinq?

Lucic is just trying to find out what balls actually feel like. Give the guy a break.

Ramires' blatantly intentional elbow to Larsson's face in retaliation for what he thought should have been a penalty minutes before should see him suspended for the rest of the season.
