Tucker Fined by NHL

TORONTO (CP) -- Forward Darcy Tucker of the Toronto Maple Leafs was fined $2,500 US but escaped any further punishment from the NHL on Tuesday after the league automatically reviewed his match penalty from the previous night's game.

Tucker took the helmet off Cam Janssen during a wild fight Monday night and hit the New Jersey Devils winger on the head with it -- twice. He was thrown out of the game with his match penalty and NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell reviewed it Tuesday.

"We did not feel it was Tucker's intent to hurt Janssen with the helmet,'' Campbell said Tuesday. "He was trying to get the helmet off and I don't think he was trying to use it as a weapon.''

Tucker said much the same after Monday's game.

"It was in the heat of the moment,'' Tucker said. "I didn't really know what the penalty was for until I got to the dressing room.''
