Hurricanes' Niederreiter fined for interfering with Saros

NEW YORK (AP) Carolina forward Nino Niederreiter was fined $5,000 by the NHL on Wednesday for interfering with Nashville goaltender Juuse Saros, the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement.

Niederreiter hit Saros up high in a collision behind the net five minutes into the Hurricanes-Predators game Tuesday night. He was given a two-minute minor penalty for roughing.

Saros remained in net for the rest of the first period before being replaced by Pekka Rinne to start the second. On Wednesday, the Predators said Saros, who started the past three games, is day to day with an upper-body injury.
