Blues head coach Craig Berube rips referees for 'one-sided' officiating
Berube was particularly frustrated about a perceived missed call involving defenseman Colton Parayko.
"Parayko gets tripped in the corner. (The Avalanche) go down (and) score a goal. ... He gets slew-footed, and they don't call it, and it cost us a goal," Berube said. "It's terrible. It's so one-sided, it's not even funny."
Friday's loss put the Blues down 3-0 in the series and they must win Game 4 on Sunday to avoid elimination.
The Blues have benefitted from Berube calling out the officiating in the past. During the 2019 Stanley Cup Final, the bench boss ripped the officials following a 7-2 Game 3 loss to the Boston Bruins. St. Louis then went on to win three of its next four games to win the title.
