Matthew Tkachuk has been fined $5,000 (the maximum allowable under the CBA), for cross-checking Bruins Garnet Hathaway in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Tkachuk is lucky to get away with just a fine as he easily could have been suspended for the dirty hit on Hathaway.
Tkachuk doesn't think he is in the wrong, when he was interviewed about the hit this is what he had to say, "It's kinda one of those pretty chippy games." said Tkachuk. "If you get cross-checked go down, try to draw a penalty. It seems that's the way this game is kinda going."
Boston Bruins forward Garnet Hathaway was slow to get up after the hit, as he was hit right on and it is unknown if he will dress for Game 5. Tkachuk's stick appeared to strike Hathaway where he has no protection from such a blow, and the Bruins forward would collapse to the ice.
