The Islanders were not too pleased with the officials following Friday night’s 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs. Several missed calls and a phantom diving call on John Tavares after he had been crosschecked in the face really grinded the gears of the Islanders. Non-more so than Isles assistant coach Doug Weight.

After the officials announced the diving call on Tavares at 16:59 Doug Weight went off on the officials. Angrily screaming at the officials for several seconds before head coach Jack Capuano went over and restrained Weight.

His outburst on the bench would not be his last. After the final buzzer had sounded and the Maple Leafs had secured the win Weight gave one final send off to the officials.



As the players and coaches made their way off the ice Weight took a water bottle off the bench and started spraying water onto the ice. It is unclear as to who the Islanders assistant coach was directing the water at. But it is a safe assumption that it was directed somewhere towards the officiating crew. If that proves to be the case, Weight could be hearing from the league office regarding the matter. 

Say what you will about the officials tonight, one thing is quite clear. Doug Weight will not be sending David Banfield or Don VanMassenhoven present this holiday season.
