Carolina Hurricanes’ head coach Rod Brind’Amour tossed a complete fit in the late stages of the Washington Capitals-Carolina Hurricanes game on Sunday, complaining about a penalty call. Following the game, Brind’Amour continued to maintain that the officials took the game out of their hands.

Brind’Amour’s fit was induced by a slashing call late in the third period that gave the Capitals a 5-on-3 man-advantage. The slashing actually broke Aliaksei Protas’ stick.

Brind’Amour said after the game that it was a shame the game ended the way it did, saying the referees “took it out of our hands.”
“That’s a great team there. They give you nothing.”

The NHL previously fined Brind’Amour $25,000 for his postgame comments criticizing officiating in the Hurricanes’ 4-3 double-overtime loss to the Boston Bruins in 2020. In addition, the league also announced a conditional fine of $25,000 to be collected in the event of any further transgressions resulting in league discipline for the next calendar year.
The Capitals took over sole control of first place in the Metropolitan Division and climbed a top the NHL with the most points in the league with the win on Sunday. They will be back in action on Tuesday when they visit the Florida Panthers.

What a crybaby. They should take the other $25,000 for that.
Im guessing if the zebras did call the slash in the 2nd that left Carlsons stick in two pieces they might not have called the slash in the third. The Canes got nothing to complain about.
I was there. The Zebras must have been trying to cover the spread.
Lots of touch penalties on Carolina, while Carolina was having to tow Caps up and down the ice with all the free hand holding. One of the hooking calls was replayed on the jumbotron and Carolina never touched him literally. Didn’t realize we were playing the Washington dive team
Try being a ref. Every game has this element. Get over it.
Meh caps have the better coach. Not even close. Weaker coaches try to influence refs. Cause they can’t really coach.
Every team has a few games a year where the officiating doesn’t even out. S*** happens. Teams have to fight thru those times, complaining only gives a bad look.
What a bunch of bs. Try watching the game before writing about it.
