According to Canadian sports network TSN, the NHL has decided not to suspend Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow, or fine coach Dave Tippett after Morrow was issued an instigator for a fight with Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown Tuesday night.
An automatic one-game suspension for the player and a $10,000 fine to the coach is levied on the team if an instigator penalty is called within the final five minutes of a game. However, the NHL reserves the right to review each case.
Morrow fought Brown after the King hit Mike Ribeiro into the boards. Brown was ejected and handed a five-minute major for boarding, though no further discipline is expected for him.
