Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was fined 10,000 for his comments criticizing officials in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round series against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Quenneville was angry after Game 3, in which Marian Hossa was hurt by a high hit from Phoenix forward Raffi Torres. Quenneville called the hit brutal and was incensed that officials didnt call a penalty on it. Officials later said that the referees did not see the play, and therefore called nothing on it.

I had a hard time. I saw exactly what happened, Quenneville said on Tuesday night. How four guys missed it tonight, it was hard. The refereeing tonight was a disgrace.

The fine money goes to the NHL Foundation.
