Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, talking to reporters on Saturday in Dallas, said Stars forwards Ryan Garbutt and Antoine Roussel had “been taking little potshots” the entire series.
“It caught up to them,” Boudreau said. “Both of them took penalties that in the regular season they get away with and the first couple of games, they were getting away with. Like I said, the thing that happened with the spear, sometimes you don’t catch that because it’s in the middle of a line change and there’s chaos there. But I think it was pretty flagrant.”
Boudreau said he “can’t comment” on Garbutt’s fine, which was $1,474.36. That's the maximum allowable by the terms of the collective bargaining agreement.
“I’d love to because there’s a lot of jokes to be made,” Boudreau said. “But I’m not going to say a thing.”
