Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville has been fined $10,000 for public comments critical of the officiating in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the Phoenix Coyotes Tuesday night in Chicago, the National Hockey League announced today.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
