Did the NHL do enough?

Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette and Pittsburgh Penguins assistant coach Tony Granato have been fined $10,000 and $2,500, respectively, for their actions late in a game Sunday at Pittsburgh. The game wound down with the Flyers' Brayden Schenn whacking Sidney Crosby in the back as both skated to their benches -- not long after Crosby swung his stick at Schenn. Then came out the Penguins enforcers. Laviolette climbed onto the dasher boards to scream at Pens coach Dan Bylsma for putting some of his hardest hitters on the ice late in the game, a move he later called "gutless." As Crosby said "You can dissect it all you want, but the fact is we don't like each other." The teams meet again Saturday.
