Bruins Nathan Horton fined for water-bottle incident after NHL finds "additional facts," NHL's Daly says

The NHL fined Bruins forward Nathan Horton what is believed $2,500 for a water-bottle incident that occurred after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final with the Lightning at the St. Pete Times Forum. Horton sprayed fans with water from a bottle and then flung the bottle into the stands after Tampa Bay's 5-4 victory.

Tensions were high right after the game as players from both teams came together and fans threw rally drums onto the ice. Boston's David Krejci was beaned by one of the rally drums.

NHL Deputy commissioner Bill Daly originally said Horton would not face league discipline, but in an e-mail Saturday said the league was able to establish "additional facts." He did not elaborate.

The maximum fine for a player under the collective bargaining agreement is $2,500.
