Hartley didn’t seem overly concerned about all the penalties handed out at the end of Game 2.

This isn’t the first time Hartley has been fined by the league. He was dinged $25,000 for a similar incident during the 2013-14 campaign.

The league also rescinded Deryk Engelland’s game misconduct he received for instigating a fight in the final five minutes of regulation.

None of the rough stuff had an impact on the score, as the Canucks won 4-1 to even the series at one game apiece.
