Blackhawks' Mayers fined

The SportsXchange

Chicago Blackhawks forward Jamal Mayers hasn't played at all in the postseason, but he still managed to get fined by the league.

Mayers was fined a half day's pay -- about $1,600 -- for shooting pucks into the Detroit Red Wings goal during warmups prior to Game 5 on Saturday, TSN reported.

Mayers shot about five pucks into Jimmy Howard's net from Chicago's side of center.

"I was trying to get under their skin," Mayers told ESPN. "The league fined me and took the appropriate action. I'll pay the piper."

Chicago won the game 4-1 but still trails in the series 3-2.
