DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – The penalty has been handed down for the cheap shot issued in Game 1 of the Red Wings and Bruins game in Boston Friday night and it’s not much of a penalty at all.

The report says Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic will not be suspended but fined $5,000 for spearing the Wings’ Danny Dekeyser between the legs.

Not for the squeamish:

A light fine is nothing more than a light tap on the wrist at this point.

Lucic committed the infraction in the closing seconds of the second period of Boston’s 1-0 loss to Detroit in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. After DeKeyser finished his check on the Bruins forward, Lucic followed DeKeyser up the ice before giving him a “cup-check” with DeKeyser’s back turned. As you can see on the video, Lucic even looks around to see if the officials are looking before delivering the low blow.

What do you think – is this the bargain of post-season penalty shots?
