TORONTO -- Boston Bruins forward Doug Doull was suspended for one game by the NHL on Tuesday for charging an opponent.

Doull will lose $2,500 in salary.

He was given a game misconduct and major penalty for charging Petr Nedved during the second period of Boston's 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

Doull had to miss Boston's rematch against New York on Tuesday night.

Also in Monday's game, Dan McGillis was sent off for a knee-to-knee hit on Rangers defenseman Darius Kasparaitis. Kasparaitis had an MRI on his left knee Tuesday.

The team did not yet have the results of the exam, but the Rangers' initial diagnosis was that Kasparaitis had sprained his MCL, a ligament that heals on its own and does not require surgery.

Also on Tuesday, the Bruins claimed center Craig MacDonald off waivers from the Florida Panthers, for whom he had no goals, three assists and 25 penalty minutes in 34 games this season. MacDonald, 26, has two goals and seven assists in 92 career games with the Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes.
