The NHL Department of Player Safety announced on Saturday morning that Washington Capitals forward Anthony Mantha has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for goalie interference against Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask in Game 4 of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoff first-round series.
After dropping a pass to forward T.J. Oshie down the wing, Mantha drove the net and made incidental contact with Rask’s upper body at 13:31 of the third period. There was no injury on the play. Mantha was given a minor penalty.
