The NHL wasted zero time handing down it's punishment to Florida Panthers Head Coach Paul Maurice.

Maurice was furious after the game between the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs where Maurice felt their was favoritism towards the Leafs and a personal issue with NHL Official Francois St Laurent.
Today the NHL has fined Maurice the sum of $25,000 for his comments.
Incase you missed his post game interview here's his quote and video that costed him a good chunk of change.
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."

- Paul Maurice

We hope that NHL officials have a hidden agenda but this is the 3rd time Coaches have questioned the officiating vs the Toronto Maple Leafs alone. If the higher market teams are getting favorable calls this is something that needs to be investigated. Let the players win the games not the officials.
