Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville was none too pleased following last night’s 2-0 loss to the Kings.
But it wasn’t his players — or even the L.A. players — that drew his ire. No, Quenneville’s angst was reserved for two individuals: Referees Ghislain Hebert and Tom Kowal.
“I thought both their goals should have been whistled down, both goals should have been called something…infractions on both their goals,” Quenneville told the Chicago Sun-Times. “Clearly, the refereeing was tough to watch.”
Quenneville’s claimed goaltender interference should’ve been called on LA’s first goal, a second-period tally from Trent Hunter. Here’s the video…you be the judge:
This isn’t the first time Hebert’s been at the center of a controversial affair. He was one of the officials working the Boston-Buffalo game when Milan Lucic bowled over Ryan Miller; he also famously called the “Sean Avery rule” on Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger back in Nov. 2010.
