Gionta fined for spearing Borowiecki


New Jersey forward Stephen Gionta has been fined $2,284.95 for spearing Ottawa defenseman Mark Borowiecki during last night’s Devils-Senators game.

Gionta was given a five-minute major for spearing, and a game misconduct.

The incident occurred near the end of the second period. Ottawa later scored on the power play, which carried over into the third period.

The Devils won the game, 5-4, in a shootout.
