Predators coach Peter Laviolette gave an earful to linesman Don Henderson as he left the Bell Centre ice after a 2-1 overtime loss to Montreal on Tuesday night.
Laviolette was venting about Craig Smith's tripping penalty on Lars Eller 2:34 into overtime, which turned into a four-on-three power play and the game-winning goal from P.K. Subban in the final game before the NHL's All-Star break.
"I don't think the last penalty was a penalty at all," Laviolette said. "Our guy had a heavy stick. There was no tripping."
