The National Hockey League won't be too happy about the optics of this one.
On Monday night Calgary Flames veteran goaltender Mike Smith was caught on a hot mic giving the NHL officials on the ice a piece of his mind after what he felt was a blown call.
The Flyers had cleared the puck down the ice and it's rather apparent now that Smith felt it should have been an easy icing call, instead the NHL officials decided to waive off the icing. Smith obviously felt it was a terrible call and he let out a loud "f*** you" while turning towards the official on the ice.
The NHL has always been extremely protective of it's officials, so it will be interesting to see if Smith incurs any fines for the incident.
