Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville has been fined $25,000 for his disco moves and crotch grab during overtime of Game 1 of the NHL Playoffs.
Quenneville took exception to referee ruling a puck had been deflected into the stands rather then calling a penalty on St. Louis which would have given the Blackhawks a 5-on-3 advantage for 0:36 seconds in the period. Instead the Blue were again able to fend off a power play.
Quenneville has already called his actions “bush league” and at practice on Friday he said he was “Disappointed at the call but I’m not… I apologize for my behavior, it wasn’t very appropriate at all,” via NBC Chicago.
The Blues won the game in the third overtime session. Game 2 between the Blue and Blackhawks takes place on Saturday.
