DETROIT -- Blackhawks forward Jamal Mayers confirmed that he was fined half a day’s pay by the NHL for antics during warm-ups before Game 5, including shooting pucks at the Detroit goal.

"I was trying to get under their skin," said Mayers, who warmed up but didn’t play in the game. "I’m not going to hide behind and lie to you. The league fined me and took the appropriate action. I’ll pay the piper."

According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the fine works out to about $1,600.

Mayers, who hasn’t played yet this postseason, said there wasn’t any response from the Red Wings during warm-ups. The Blackhawks won the game 4-1, although he’s not taking any credit for it.

"The guys played unbelievable hockey," he said. "We’re going to need an even bigger effort tonight. All of us will do anything to win."
