Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was fined $10,000 Thursday for criticizing the officiating during Game 3, stemming from Raffi Torres' hit on Marian Hossa.

Hossa was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being hit Torres, of the Phoenix Coyotes, in the game Tuesday night in Chicago. Torres didn't get a penalty but since has been suspended indefinitely by the league.

"How four guys missed it ... was hard," Quenneville said. "The refereeing tonight was a disgrace."
