BREAKING: PAUL MAURICE GETS A HUGE FINE BY THE NHL

BY RYAN
On Tuesday, the Florida Panthers played against the Toronto Maple Leafs, in that turned out to be a 5-4 OT win for the Maple Leafs.

During the game, 16 penalties were called which resulted in 10 powerplays. Things got a little heated when 7 of those 10 powerplays were given to the Toronto Maple Leafs, which upset Panthers coach Paul Maurice.

After the game he had a few comments towards the referees:

Well, it'll always be penalties that you take in the game you earn, and there's a whole bunch of (penalties) you're not gonna like it all. I thought we had the inordinate share of those.


I don't know what the hell those guys were doing tonight. But it wasn't Florida Panther–friendly.

I just explained to 'em, it had nothing to do with my players; it had to do with me and a relationship that I have with one of the referees. That's what that was all about. So, just go out, keep your mouth shut, and play the game.




Today the NHL announced a fine for Maurice:

Florida Panthers head coach Paul Maurice has been fined $25,000 for comments about officiating during a media availability following NHL Game No. 706 in Toronto on Tuesday, Jan. 17, the National Hockey League announced today. The fine money goes to the NHL Foundation.
