NEW YORK, April 1 (UPI) -- Detroit Red Wings assistant coach Joe Kocur has been suspended two games and the team was fined $5,000 on Monday for is behavior Sunday against St. Louis.
Kocur tossed a chair onto the ice during the fight-filled third period of Saturday's win over the Blues.
Referees Dave Jackson and Stephen Walkom handed out 243 minutes in penalties, including 219 in the third period. After a second round of brawls with 35 seconds remaining, Kocur received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for throwing a folding chair onto the ice.
Kocur, who accumulated 2,519 penalty minutes during a 15-year playing career, missed Monday's game against Nashville, and will miss Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.
Detroit General Manager Ken Holland said the team will not appeal the suspension.
"Obviously, Robbie Ftorek threw a chair on the ice here at Joe Louis and basically got the same suspension," Holland noted. "It certainly was not a very nice way to finish the hockey game. Looked like 20 years ago. We had guys in fights that don't fight, it's not their game. The game was out of hand. We're happy nobody got hurt."
The Blues were fined $25,000 and Coach Joel Quenneville received a $5,000 fine for the conduct of his team in the final minute of the 6-2 loss.
