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 Capitals’ forward Aliaksei Protas’ stick.
He 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.”
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.
