Per Rule 46.21 in the NHL rulebook, “a player who is deemed to be the instigator of an altercation in the final 5 minutes shall be suspended for 1 game, pending a review of the incident. When the suspension is imposed, the Coach shall be fined $10,000.”

Nurse was assessed a minor penalty for instigating, a major penalty for fighting and a 10-minute misconduct with 50 seconds remaining of the third period in Edmonton’s 4-1 victory. The Oilers evened the best-of-seven series at two wins apiece heading into Friday’s Game 5 in Las Vegas.

Nurse, 28, has recorded four assists in 10 playoff games this spring.

Philip Broberg, who was a healthy scratch on Wednesday, may draw back into the lineup in place of Nurse.
