Coyotes' Domingue accuses referees of giving Holtby, Caps preferential treatment

Superstar treatment in the NHL?

Arizona Coyotes second-year starter Louis Domingue accused the officials of such partiality Monday night, more specifically their inability to give him "the whistle" in a loss to Braden Holtby and the NHL-best Washington Capitals.

"I'm expecting that they treat every guy the same way, and I felt like because I don't have many games in this league I'm being treated differently," he said, according to Sarah McLellan of azcentral sports. "I think that if Holtby would have covered the puck this way, they would have blew the whistle right away.

"All game it was the same thing. I didn't have the whistle."

He added: "It's just unacceptable that they don't treat us the same way."

Domingue's beef was engendered in the third, when he stopped a slap shot from Tom Wilson and appeared to cover up the puck. However, it was dug out from under his glove and jammed in by Mike Richards - a goal that proved to be the eventual game-winner.
