Panthers Head Coach Calls Out Referees & Gets a $25,000 Fine - NHL to Investigate?

PANTHERS HEAD COACH CALLS OUT REFEREES & GETS A $25,000 FINE - NHL TO INVESTIGATE?

BY S. HARPER
There's been an interesting yet concerning trend going on in the NHL and biased officiating when it comes to certain teams, especially the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Florida Panthers Head Coach Paul Maurice isn't the first Coach this season to question the officiating when it comes to games vs the Toronto Maple Leafs. Maurice was furious with NHL official Francois St. Laurent, claiming he had personal issues with Maurice.



Maurice questioned how the Panthers were penalized 7 times in the first 40 minutes of the game, where the Leafs would pick up a 5-4 overtime win.


After the game Maurice would comment on the officiating saying:

"I just explained to them it had nothing to do with my players. Maurice said, "It has to do with a relationship I have with one of the referees.

That's what it's all about. There will always be penalties that you take in a game here," suggesting favoritism to the Leafs. "But there is a whole lot you're not going to like at all. We had the inordinate share of those described calls..

"I don't know what the hell those were doing tonight. It certainly wasn't Florida Panthers friendly."
