NEW YORK -- Canadiens defenseman Stephane Quintal was suspended for one game for a fight with Carolina's Bob Boughner after Montreal's 3-1 victory over the Hurricanes.

Quintal will forfeit $10,370.37 of his salary. He was assessed a match penalty for attempting to injure during the brawl Saturday night.

Quintal tried to kick Boughner while both players were being restrained by the linesmen. He will miss Monday's game against Philadelphia.
