Brind'Amour went on to accuse the referees of handing the goal to the Boston Bruins, which happened to be the 50th goal for Bruins forward David Pastrnak and the 600th point of his career.

"It's hard when you feel like they're just tossing them a goal," said Brind'Amour of the officials.

It is unclear whether Brind'Amour will be fined for his comments, but it is certain that NHL referees Ghislain Hebert and Graham Skilliter are not too happy with the callout.
