Friday night was no fun for the Penguins who had a disappointing loss against New Jersey.

The Pens had a 1-0 lead until mid-second period.

The Devils scored their first of the night on the power play, and Sullivan had a few words to tell to the ref, and, not claiming to be any good at lip-reading, I can tell he was not telling the official how much he loves him:




This resulted in the Pens getting a minor penalty, first labeled as "abuse of officials", then changed to "unsportsmanlike conduct".

The thing is, Maple Leafs' head coach Sheldon Keefe got fined $25,000 last week for the same thing, and Leafs fans are not happy, calling the league out for bias since they didn't fine Sully.
