Habs Drouin accuses NHL official!

Uh oh...

Montreal Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin is still wondering what he did wrong in the second period of the Habs' 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals last night. 

Drouin was sent to the penalty box for unsportsmanlike conduct, and has no clue why he ended up there. But he was surely upset about the call that came when he went to talk to linesman Jonny Murray, who was there to "steal the show", according to Drouin. 

"What is said on the ice will remain on the ice," Drouin started off in an interview with the Journal de Montreal. "I wasn't that insistent. He had a short fuse. It was the first time I saw a linesman do that. Let's just say he wanted to show it was his night more than ours."

No holding back there. The Canadiens were also upset at the penalty that forward Tomas Plekanec took at the beginning of the game, when Caps' Evgeny Kuznetsov was sent off for tripping, but Plekanec joined him for diving. 

"I didn't like Plekanec's diving penalty, it did not make any sense," explained head coach Claude Julien after the game. 

Cleary, the officiating was not satisfying enough for the Montreal Canadiens!
