BUFFALO, N.Y. - New York Islanders general manager Garth Snow can accept the NHL's punishment following a fight-filled game against Pittsburgh.

He's just wondering why the Penguins also weren't fined US$100,000.

Snow spoke Sunday before the Islanders' game at Buffalo, and a day after the NHL suspended two Islanders and fined the team for failing to control its players.

The punishment followed the Islanders' 9-3 win over Pittsburgh on Friday in a game that produced 346 penalty minutes.

The Penguins were not fined, and only Eric Godard was suspended 10 games for leaving the bench to join a third-period brawl.

Snow said he was surprised the Penguins also weren't fined, while noting that no Islanders player left the bench to fight.
