Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was fined US$10,000 for blasting the referees following Game 3 with the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.



Quenneville called the officiating a "disgrace" after watching Coyotes forward Raffi Torres hammer Marian Hossa with a high hit.



No penalty was called on the play and Hossa was taken from the ice on a stretcher.
