There will be no respite for Red Wings forwards in Game Two.
There will be no respite for Red Wings forwards in Game Two.

The judge has ruled, and Shea Weber will be fined $2,500 (the max allowed under the CBA) for his rough on Henrik Zetterberg last night at the end of Game One (review the play and watch the video here). Here's an excerpt from the NHL's statement:

"We felt this was a reckless and reactionary play on which Weber threw a glancing punch and then shoved Zetterberg's head into the glass," said NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety and Hockey Operations Brendan Shanahan. "We reached out to Detroit following the game and were informed that Zetterberg did not suffer an apparent injury and should be in the lineup for Game 2.

"This play and the fine that addressed it will be significant factors in assessing any incidents involving Shea Weber throughout the remainder of the playoffs."

I, for one, am shocked that the league has decided not to issue a suspen.... oh, wait a minute, no I'm not.

Buckle up, Game Two should be a beauty!
