NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has fined Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic $5,000 for making an obscene gesture at the fans in Montreal.

Lucic taunted the crowd and then mimicked raising the Stanley Cup while entering the penalty box in Boston’s 6-4 loss to the Canadiens. He did not speak to the media after the game.

Lucic has not been well-liked in Montreal since last year’s playoffs, when he threatened Dale Weise in the handshake line after the Canadiens eliminated the Bruins in seven games.

He picked up a boarding penalty with 80 seconds left in Thursday night’s game, then was given a misconduct for complaining to the officials. He also flexed his muscles to the Bell Centre crowd from the penalty box.
