Ken Hitchcock receives a game misconduct

Ken Hitchcock received a game misconduct at the end of the STL/PHX game on 4/18/13, reportedly for going after Tim Peel and/or Mike Leggo. The penalty appears in the official box score for the game.

Quote:
Lou Korac ‏@lkorac10

Hitchcock received a 10-min game misconduct at the end of the game. He was seen being restrained by a lineman going after Peel/Leggo.
With about two minutes left in the game, Backes received a 2 min minor for boarding OEL. On the ensuing PP, Hanzal boarded Pietrangelo in a similar manor, but did not receive a penalty. Shortly thereafter, the play having continued, Vrbata scored the tying goal.

I've gotta say, I admire Hitch for going after the refs, and double props if it was directed at Tim Peel, who IMO is the worst active NHL referee.

What exactly does this mean by 'going after'?

Supposedly he was on the ice during the incident, which I guess suggests that he was advancing towards the refs. I doubt he was going to punch somebody out.

I have never heard of a coach getting a game misconduct before. Is he going to get suspended?

I was watching the end of the game, and Hanzal's "boarding" (more accurately described as hitting to the numbers, Pietrangelo never hit the boards) looked pretty mundane. I didn't see Backes' penalty though to be fair. Everyone sure seemed to be up in arms about it, that sure puts it into perspective.

If I were the ref though, I wouldn't have called the initial play on Hanzal, but taken Hanzal for embellishing the 'slash' he received (he quite clearly got slashed once, looks at the ref for a call, gets slashed in an almost identical manner and lays down "hurt".....).

At least the Blues won in a SO

Korac's "going after" wordage is a little extreme. The Blues feed showed a bit of it. They didn't show him talking to the refs at all, but he was talking to the linesmen saying "that's ********". He tried to talk to the refs during the game and they wouldn't, so I guess he tried to talk to them after.

Replays showed Hitch being intercepted by the linesmen while he was trying to approach the refs after the game. Hitch did not look happy or jovial.

In the post game interview, Hitch repeatedly expressed his concern that Pietrangelo could have been injured on the play.

He came on the ice after the shootout ended to have words with the officials. Thats basically all that happened. I wonder if there will be a fine or something? Didn't seem so bad when I saw it.

Shut up Ken and go away. You just won, don't cry about it to the refs any more.

They just showed the "highlights" on NHL network and it doesn't even look like he did anything more than go over and talk to them. Refs are really thin skinned lately.

Popped up Gamecentre and I can't see him doing anything. Just looks like he's talking to them.

No, he won't. It's not common to see a ref get a game misconduct, but it's does happen a little bit.

Off the top of my head, I remember Bryan Murray getting thrown out of a game when he was the Sens coach in a game against the Anaheim Ducks in Anaheim. The game was one of the worst reffed games I've ever seen, and Murray just let off on the ref and was thrown out.

Looking at the refs, I can see why Hitch was pissed. Tim Peel is a terrible, terrible ref.

I am not a Blues fan or Phoenix fan, but I was watching the game and after the ridiculous call on Backes (OEL turned his back last second and Backes was committed), I was a little upset, but it happens. Then I saw Hanzal's hit from behind on Petro, and I thought perfect, that will equal out the other penalty. The goal was unfortunate, but the missed call was infuriating, and I had no interest in either team winning. One of the worst missed calls of the season. Up there with the Duchene missed offside.

I wonder if the penalty was compulsory for him approaching the refs after the game. Also might require some kind of league reprimand; otherwise, I don't see the point of the penalty.

Edmonton had the same issue the last time we played the Yotes.

I wish Krueger had the balls that Hitchcock clearly does.

It is ridiculous that the governing body that controls officiating in the league also owns a team.

Hitch was right. Its disgusting how little accountability there is with the refs. Only job in the world were ****ing up all over the place is ok and comes with zero repercussions

The game misconduct doesn't really mean anything, but if you receive a certain amount of them you get an automatic suspension. That's really the only possible problem.

that could and could not have been called

I didn't like the reaction of the Blues but I didn't see the Backes call

In today's NHL, a coach saying, "That's an elbow!" gets you two minutes even if one or two coaches, one or two times in history, said worse and got nothing.

Bench penalties based on coach's comments and actions are arbitrary, and it's ********.
