By Mark Stepneski
ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun has an update on last week's confrontation between Stars forward Steve Ott and Flyers coach Laviolette.
Dallas Stars winger Steve Ott and Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette avoided any league discipline for their bumping incident last week, a source told ESPN.com Tuesday.

The league was satisfied Ott and Laviolette settled things over the phone and decided no fines were warranted.
