The Dallas Stars and New York Rangers played Tuesday night in their first meeting since December, when Cody Eakin ran over Henrik Lundqvist behind the New York net, leading to a four-game suspension for charging.
Looking for some revenge, Chris Kreider went looking for a fight with Eakin in their latest matchup. When he got it, Eakin’s helmet came off his head and Kreider used it as a weapon against him. The result? A $5,000 fine for Kreider, the maximum allowed under the CBA.
The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
