The NHL fined New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin $5,000 on Saturday for unsportsmanlike conduct during Friday's win over the Boston Bruins.

Panarin took his glove off and threw it at Bruins forward Brad Marchand while the two were exchanging words from the benches late in the contest.

Officials gave both Panarin and Marchand 10-minute misconducts as a result of the altercation, which took place with about 12 seconds remaining in the Rangers' 5-2 victory.

Panarin explained Saturday that he became agitated after Marchand mentioned his opponent's home country.

The two players rank among the league's scoring leaders this season. Panarin is tied for ninth in assists (16) and 13th in points (21), while Marchand is tied for ninth in points with 22.
