Rod Brind'Amour blames the refs for game 3 loss

Published May 22, 2021 at 9:26

After Game 3, Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour blamed the officials. The bench boss was upset because he thought his team had to battle the refs the whole game.

‘'Nashville is a phenomenal team, but we're also fighting the refs, that's plain and simple. You can't tell me two games in a row they get seven or eight penalties and we get three? When the game is this even? It's not right. I give my guys a ton of credit for just sticking in, going and playing their butts off, and having a good chance to win. Two overtimes, you know, a knick-knack penalty when there was stuff going on all over. It just flipped the momentum and they scored the next shift after because we're out of rotation. That's not how it should go.''

The Hurricanes lead the series 2-1 and will play Game 4 on Sunday. Regardless of whether his team is winning or losing, Brind'Amour is never afraid to express his displeasure. He's one of the best head coaches in the NHL, and defending his team is a top priority for him. To the Predators' six, the Canes have been named for 14 fines. It's difficult to fault him for speaking up.
