National Hockey League roundup (Reuters)

(The Sports Xchange) - Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has apologized for an obscene gesture he made toward fans as he entered the penalty box during Thursday's game at the Montreal Canadiens. Lucic was fined $5,000 by the NHL on Friday. Lucic received a penalty late during the 6-4 loss. As he entered the penalty box, he made the gesture and then flexed his arms pretending to lift the Stanley Cup. "Obviously not proud of what I did there," Lucic said on Saturday. "Just want to apologize to our organization for embarrassing the Bruins organization. ...

Pascal Dupuis feeling ‘much better’ after puck to neck, could be in lineup vs. Isles (Puck Daddy)

Pascal Dupuis left the CONSOL Energy Center ice on Thursday night on a stretcher . It made for a scary sight, but the Pittsburgh Penguins forward put the crowd at a bit of ease when he gave the thumbs up.  Moments earlier, Dupuis had been cross-checked in front of Dallas Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen, and as he was falling forward he was hit in the back of the neck by a Kris Letang shot: Dupuis experienced numbness in his arm, but he was well enough to skate on his own Friday morning. On Saturday, he took part in the Penguins' morning skate, ahead of their meeting with the New York Islanders, and joined the normal line rushes. From Sam Kasan of the Penguins :  “I tried to get up and I couldn’t feel my arms and my extremities. I started shaking my gloves and wanted to see if they were really shaking or not,” Dupuis said. “They were kind of moving. I dropped my gloves and (Evgeni Malkin) came around yelling ‘Just lay there! Just stay there!’ I said, ‘OK, Geno.’ I just stayed there.”  Penguins team doctors and athletic trainers came out to attend to Dupuis. As he lay on the ice the feeling began to come back in his arms, but the team took every precaution, removing him from the ice on a stretcher and taking him to the hospital for testing. “The feeling came back, but I argued with the doctors,” Dupuis said. “It took a little while. Feeling started slowly to come back. It was a weird feeling. It’s obviously never happened to me. I never got numb like this. It’s kind of scary actually.” Once Dupuis was given the all-clear after the tests, he returned to CONSOL and was able to talk his teammates, including Letang. Penguins head coach Mike Johnston said Dupuis will be a game-time decision, but given his full participation on Saturday morning, it's likely he'll make a return versus the Islanders.. - - - - - - - Sean Leahy is the associate editor for Puck Daddy on Yahoo Sports.

Chris Campoli concussed after elbow; does Sweden need more fighting? (Video) (Puck Daddy)

So the Swedish Hockey League is in a bit of a hit-to-the-head rut. Earlier this week, Johan Forsberg went high on an opponent, was ejected from the game and called with an apology. Now it’s former NHL defenseman Chris Campoli on the receiving end. Campoli – who played for the New York Islanders, Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks and Montreal Canadiens – is on HV71 in the SHL. After releasing the puck in a game on Friday night, he was hit high by Vaxjo forward Alexander Johansson. Campoli said he suffered a concussion. No question that Johansson finishes high, with his elbow, on Campoli. "It is disgusting to see such things. It can end a career," said forward Teemu Laine. “An elbow to the head is just cowardly. It is cowardly to lift his arms. And even if I do not sit in any disciplinary board so it must be very heavy penalties. It's the only way to get it off.” Said Campoli: "I have been diagnosed with a concussion but feel a little better now compared to last night.” This is the third incident recently featuring a high hit on a SHL player, which has led to an interesting suggestion from SportExpressen’s Henrik Sjöberg: Maybe Swedish hockey needs more fighting: “I know that the debate about fighting in hockey parts IIHF Sweden and I'm not saying that you should make it to a show in North America, but I believe that the penalty for throwing the gloves are way too hard in Sweden. “When Johan Forsberg apologizes and is saddened by the situation in Coop Arena, I do not miss him, but yet I can not help but think that it might never have happened if he knew he would have to stand up for his actions afterwards. “Or if the penalty has been twice as hard.” It’s not the first time someone has called for more fighting in the SHL . But we imagine that last suggestion would be taken before the SHL ever eases on fighting rules, which involve automatic suspensions.
