Leafs forwards Wayne Simmonds and Kyle Clifford fined for actions against Lightning



Toronto Maple Leafs forwards Wayne Simmonds and Kyle Clifford have been fined for their actions during the third period of Thursday's 8-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.


Simmonds was punished for charging Mikhail Sergachev, while Clifford was dinged for high-sticking Corey Perry.


The fines totaling a combined US$4,750 - the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement - go to the players' emergency assistance fund.


The Leafs, who are all but assured of finishing second in the Atlantic Division with four games left on the schedule, were 11-1-1 prior to Thursday's demolition at the hands of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions.


Toronto visits the league-leading Florida Panthers on Saturday night.
