Star player blasts the NHL's entire system after questionable call.

Marian Hossa was not a happy man on Tuesday.

After having a first period goal disallowed against the Arizona Coyotes, the Blackhawks' forward was not only critical of the ruling, but entire coach's challenge system itself.

"I thought that was (a) joke," Hossa said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "I tried to battle in front of the net and I don't have any intention to touch the goalie, just try to battle through two guys and put the puck in the net.

"I don't know what's going to happen in the playoffs, if there's going to be calls after calls after calls. But I don’t think it’s good for the league."

For his part, head coach Joel Quenneville was beside himself on the bench after the goal was overturned due to goaltender interference.

The Blackhawks managed to take the win in overtime, which probably kept 'Coach Q' from saying something he might regret.

It appears not everyone is in agreement with the NHL's newly instated rules.
