Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis has been fined an undisclosed amount for his comments regarding the officiating prior to Game 7 with the Chicago Blackhawks.

After the Canucks lost three straight games to the Blackhawks to even their series, Gillis addressed the media to outline his issues with the disparity in penalty calls in the series.

"I'm not sure how you explain that discrepancy, but we're going to be very hard-pressed to win hockey games if throughout the entire series, when the score is tight, they get 75 per cent more power plays than we do," Gillis said Monday. "That's the facts we are facing."

The Canucks won Game 7 on Tuesday and open their series against the Nashville Predators in Vancouver on Thursday.
