New York, NY – The National Hockey League handed down a $10,000 fine to Edmonton Oilers head coach Tom Renney on Tuesday.
Renney was docked for comments regarding the officiating in Monday's 2-0 loss to the Kings in Los Angeles.
Noting the disparity in penalties called between his team and the hosts, the 56-year-old Oilers bench boss said following the game, "I'm not sure (why). Maybe (they) need Hollywood in the playoffs. I'm not sure."
With the victory, Los Angeles ascended to the top of the Pacific Division and into third place in the Western Conference. Edmonton is 14th in the West with two games remaining.
