The NHL has fined Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette $10,000 and Pittsburgh assistant Tony Granato $2,500 for their actions late in Sunday’s Flyers-Penguins game.

The war of words didn’t end there.
Laviolette called Pittsburgh’s actions “gutless” while Bylsma said Brayden Schenn‘s cross-check on Sidney Crosby was a cheap shot — “clearly a guy targeting a player,” the Penguins head coach contended.
Granato didn’t address reporters following the game.
The $12,500 in accrued fines will go towards the NHL Foundation.
