Bruins coach Cassidy fined $25,000 for criticizing refs

BOSTON (AP) — The NHL has fined Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy $25,000 for his criticism of the officials after Game 5 of Boston’s second-round playoff series against the New York Islanders. The Islanders scored three power-play goals on four chances in a 5-4 victory on Monday night while being called for two penalties themselves. After the game, Cassidy commended the officials but said the teams were treated differently despite playing similar styles. He said his opponent was selling itself as “the New York Saints, not the New York Islanders.”
