Ference gives Montreal crowd a salute, fined

Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference was fined $2,500 for his post-goal celebration in the second period of Game 4 on Thursday. 

Cameras caught Ference flip the Bell Centre crowd the bird after he scored to make it a one-goal game. The Bruins eventually won the game, 5-4, in overtime to even the best-of-7 series at 2-2. The NHL announced the fine -- the largest allowed under the collective bargaining agreement -- on Friday. 

The Globe and Mail reports what what CBC analyst Glenn Healy said after the gesture and whether punishment was warranted: 
“It’s what he does after he scores the goal that enrages me,” Healy said. “Andrew Ference, you better get ready to open up your wallet because this little act here after you scored the goal ... isn’t called for.”

There's also the possibility of a suspension. The NHL suspended Canadiens defenseman James Wisniewski, who was then with the New York Islanders, two games for an obscene gesture in October.

Since this is family website, let's just say Wisniewski's gesture was just slightly more graphic than what Ference did Thursday. 

Here's a look:

The NHL is a joke No suspension for Ference. only a little fine of 2500.00. thats like getting a parking ticket for us.  Cambelle is showing is true colours. He wants his son to win the cup. and will do everything he can to help the bruins. No suspension for Chara now no suspension for ference. but just a few months ago when the Wiz was playing for the ISL he got 2 games suspension and a fine . so now your letting the players to give the bird to the fans . who pay your salary. me for one i go to about 15 to 20 game a year. now i will not go anymore. so now the ligue could kiss my canadian ass.
