Joel Quenneville emphatically protests non-call by grabbing handful of crotch (GIF)


The Chicago Blackhawks were involved in an emotional, tense and bitter overtime battle with the St. Louis Blues when a perceived non-call by the refs prompted head coach Joel Quenneville to briefly went rigging berserk on the bench.

Quenneville clearly believed that the Blues, already down one man due to a delay of game penalty, deserved another one but the refs apparently did not share his views. The coach began screaming and capped his meltdown with an emphatic, forceful and let’s be honest, potentially painful grab of his crotch…

Seriously, he could have ruptured a testicle if he wasn’t careful.

In the end, the Hawks didn’t get the call, and went on to lose 4-3 in triple overtime in losing the opening game in the teams’ Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Quenneville, meanwhile, obviously disappointed in coming up just short, possibly required a bag of ice in the dressing room afterward. Sheesh.
