The NHL on Sunday fined defensemen Charlie McAvoy of the Boston Bruins and Brendan Smith of the Carolina Hurricanes for separate incidents during Game 7 of their teams' Eastern Conference first-round series.

McAvoy is $5,000 lighter in the pocket after tripping Carolina defenseman Brady Skjei during the third period of Saturday's game. The fine is the maximum allowable under the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Smith, in turn, received the maximum fine of $2,000 from the NHL for elbowing Boston forward David Pastrnak during the third period.

The Hurricanes posted a 3-2 win over the Bruins on Saturday to win the best-of-seven series. They advanced to the conference semifinals and will face the winner of Sunday's Game 7 between the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers.
