CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville won't face disciplinary action from the NHL for critical comments made about the referees after a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Quenneville was upset there were no penalties called on either of the Kings' two goals.

"Both goals should have been whistled down," he said after the game. "Both goals should have been called something. Infractions on both their goals. Clearly the refereeing tonight was tough to watch."

A day later, Quenneville was ready to put the frustration behind him.

"It's over. It's done with," Quenneville said Thursday. "I said what I had to say. I think I was a little excited after the game but it's a new day and we're moving on."

Kings forward Kyle Clifford briefly fell on top of goalie Corey Crawford during a goal-mouth scramble allowing Trent Hunter to score the first goal of the game in the second period.

Later, the Kings' Justin Williams appeared to take the feet out from underneath defenseman Nick Leddy in front of the Hawks' net allowing time and space for Jarret Stoll to score.

Quenneville believed "goaltender interference" and "slew foot" should have been whistled on the plays but both goals were allowed to stand.
