Saturday evening witnessed the Boston Bruins competing against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a challenging match. The Bruins secured a 6-4 victory, seemingly wrapping up the encounter without any issues. However, the NHL announced the following day that they would be imposing a hefty fine of $2,734.38 for an incident they described as such.

Boston's Kevin Shattenkirk has been fined $2,734.38, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for unsportsmanlike conduct during last night's game against Pittsburgh.

The puzzling aspect is that no one could ascertain the precise reason behind the hefty fine. The NHL provided no clarification, leaving everyone speculating. Certain individuals speculated it could be linked to an altercation during the game involving a Penguins player colliding with a Bruins goalie. They conjectured that perhaps Shattenkirk, a Bruins player, reacted from the bench due to provocation.

Was it the poke from the bench?

However, it's important to note that all of this is mere conjecture as the NHL hasn't provided any explicit information about the incident. Thus, at present, it remains shrouded in mystery.
