Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien has been fined $10,000 for critical comments he made about officials following his team's 4-3 loss to the Dallas Stars on Saturday, the league announced Monday.
Julien was irate after Montreal's overtime defeat. He said several penalty calls were missed late in the game and called the officiating "embarrassing."
The Canadiens were up 3-0 on Dallas before giving up four unanswered goals. They didn't receive any power-play time in the loss.
Julien specifically believed the officials missed calls relating to Montreal forwards Joel Armia and Max Domi. He said Armia was hooked in overtime and Domi was clipped in the mouth by an opposing player's stick, drawing blood.
