Chara Fined 5K For Cross Checking Gallagher in The Face

Pretty crazy to me that this isn’t at least a one game suspension. The NHL player safety department is out here trying to eliminate head shots without actually eliminating head shots. My only reasoning of a fine instead of suspension is that Chara is significantly bigger than Gallagher and didn’t necessarily mean to hit him directly in the face. Having said that, I don’t think it matters. You still get called for a trip even when someone steps on your stick, a penalty is a penalty. Glad Gallagher is okay and happy to see that there’s still bad blood between Boston and Montreal.
