The fines keep coming for the Boston Bruins!

Jake DeBrusk was fined after Game 2, David Krejci was fined after Game 4, Bruce Cassidy was fined after Game 5, and joining them is...

...Nick Ritchie! Come on down.

Ritchie is the latest Bruin to open his wallet, as he was fined $5,000 for elbowing Scott Mayfield last night.

The incident:

No penalty was called on the play, though it's pretty fair to say that the refs missed one here.

Mayfield tried to sell it a little more by briefly staying down, though he popped right up when play game back his way.

Still, a dumb play by Ritchie.

The Bruins are now up to $40,000 in fines this series.

Islanders fans have pointed to this fact as evidence that the Bruins don't have a leg to stand on in regards to officiating complaints, and it's kind of hard to argue that point.

Still, an elbow by Ritchie doesn't mean the other calls/non-calls weren't bad too.

Everything is bad!
