PHILADELPHIA - JUNE 02: Head coach Peter Laviolette of the Philadelphia Flyers attends a press conference after the Flyers defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 in overtime in Game Three of the 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Final at Wachovia Center on June 2, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette was fined $10,000 Monday after calling out counterpart Dan Bylsma for sending out his checking line late in Philadelphia's 6-3 win at Pittsburgh on Sunday. Penguins assistant Tony Granato, who stepped on the top of the side boards and in between the two head coaches, was also fined $2,500. The incident occurred at 18:57 of the third period. Fine money will go to the NHL Foundation. Laviolette was upset that the Penguins' fourth line took a shift shortly after Jakub Voracek's empty-net goal concluded the scoring. During the shift, Penguins forward Joe Vitale leveled Flyers center Daniel Briere shortly after the ensuing faceoff, starting a chain of events that included Laviolette smashing a stick over the glass.
