According to multiple reports, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference has been fined $2,500 by the NHL for making an obscene gesture following his second-period goal in Thursday night’s OT win over the Canadiens.

No penalty was assessed at the time, and Ference denied making the gesture when asked by reporters after the game.

‘€œCoach just showed me it, and it looks awful,’€ Ference said . ‘€œI just saw it and I can assure you that’€™s not part of my repertoire. I don’€™t know if my glove got caught up. I can assure you, that’€™s not part of who I am or what I ever have been. So it looks awful, I admit it, I completely apologize to how it looks. You guys have covered me long enough to know that that’€™s not part of my repertoire.

‘€œI was putting my fist in the air,’€ Ference added. ‘€œI’€™m sorry, it does look awful. I just saw it.’€
