CANUCKS GM GILLIS FINED FOR REMARKS ABOUT REFS

Vancouver Canucks’ GM, Mike Gillis, is a little lighter in the wallet today as he was fined by the NHL for criticizing the officials’ work, prior to Game 7 win against the Chicago Blackhawks. Gillis didn’t hold back on his opinion when he said “I’m not sure how you explain that discrepancy, but we’re going to be very hard-pressed to win hockey games if throughout the entire series … when the score is tight … they get 75 per cent more power plays than we do.” “That’s the facts we are facing.”

3. CAPS’ GREEN DECLARES HIMSELF HEALTHLY

Washington Capitals’ defenceman, Mike Green, has told the media that he is feeling no ill effects after taking a puck to the head on Saturday night in their 3-1 series clincher against the New York Rangers. “I’m fine, other than a bruise,” said Green,  who was struck by a Matt Gilroy’s first period slapshot. “They make good helmets. This time it hit me in the helmet. I’m OK.”
