came out firing (NSFW – language warning) against the QMJHL establishment Saturday night after a game where he felt he was robbed by the officials.Quebec Remparts head coach and GM Philippe Boucher
Boucher had a bad night at the office Saturday, a 7-3 loss to the Saint John Sea Dogs where his team gave up three power play goals in the final frame, including two on a 5-on-3 from three Rempart penalties called on the same play, a slashing call on Massimo Carozza and two unsportsmanlike conduct calls, with one going to the man behind the bench.
Boucher fired back hard, saying that the call on Carozza was bogus, and that he can’t question referees anymore.
“I’ve coached 181 games in the league before the season started,” he started, building up steam. “I know if I want things to improve I have to improve too. I have spent time improving [myself]. In 181 games, I didn’t have a single warning.
“So far this year, I’ve had 7 warnings, 3 bench penalties and an ejection,” Boucher said.Read More »from Remparts bench boss Boucher puts league brass on blast; says attendance down due to lack of “robustness”
