Bruins’ Taylor Hall gets supplemental discipline for punching Leafs’ Lyubushkin
Bruins forward Taylor Hall has been hit with supplemental discipline after sucker-punching Maple Leafs defenseman Ilya Lyubushkin in Tuesday night’s 6-4 loss at TD Garden.
Fortunately for the Bruins, but not so fortunately for Hall’s wallet, he’s been fined the maximum of $5,000 for his actions. NHL Player Safety announced the fine via Twitter on Wednesday.
Lyubushkin hit Hall from behind during the second period, sending Hall head-first into the boards, and was not penalized for boarding. A frustrated Hall got up and retaliated by punching Lyubushkin in the face from behind. Hall was penalized, for roughing.

Hall obviously lost control of his emotions at that moment, and needs to show more discipline. At the same time, it was a little surprising that Lyubushkin got nothing for what’s typically a dangerous way to hit somebody. End of the day, the whole thing isn’t that big of a deal, as much as crazy Leafs fans may want it to be.
The Bruins are fortunate to get to keep Hall in the lineup, though. They get back to action on Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden.
