The Montreal Canadiens received a baffling penalty at the end of the third period on Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers, and coach Claude Julien was predictably infuriated.
"There's a point there that they've (referees) got to take certain responsibilities," Julien told reporters postgame, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels. "What's disappointing to me is after that, I don't know if they felt embarrassed but they made sure that we weren't going to get any breaks."
Midway through the third period in a tie game, the Canadiens changed lines after an icing call because they believed the puck deflected off someone at center ice. They were then handed a delay of game penalty for debating the icing call and not changing back to the same line quick enough.
