Joel Quenneville rankled by ruling on disallowed goal in loss to Sharks

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was irate after his team's 2-0 loss to San Jose Tuesday night.

He was not happy that a first-period Blackhawks goal was overturned for goaltender interference after a challenge by Sharks coach Peter DeBoer.

"It's gone to a different level," Quenneville said at his postgame news conference, which lasted all of 14 seconds. "I don't know the rules anymore, or something's changed because my understanding, played a lot of hockey, that, I don't know. I think everybody has an interpretation of what's a good goal and what's a bad goal, but I can't believe it."

Quenneville then threw his hands up and stormed off without taking questions.

Corey Crawford made 25 saves for the Blackhawks, whose three-game winning streak was snapped. Chicago was blanked for the sixth time this season.

The Blackhawks, the defending Stanley Cup champions, came out flat off a 5-1 win at Dallas on Saturday night that strengthened their hold on first place in the Central Division.
