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.

The Bruins won Game 4 by a score of 4-1 and lead the best-of-seven series 3-1.

Mantha has recorded two assists in the series.

Game 5 will be at Capital One Arena on Sunday night (7 PM ET, USA nationally, NBC Sports Washington locally).

    What about Rask punches in Game 3? I guess that was after the whistle and legal.
