Andrew Shaw went off the deep end during Tuesday night’s game agains the Blues.
The Blackhawks were down 4-3 in the game’s final minutes when Shaw was called for interference, and he was none too pleased.

When he was doing flipping the bird, his tantrum continued in the penalty box.

After that, things got taken a bit too far. Shaw directed an F-bomb and a gay slur at a ref.
After the game, which St. Louis won to bring their series lead to 3-1, Shaw claimed not to know what he said.
Andrew Shaw on if he used homophobic slur after penalty: "I don't know what I said. I wasn't happy with the call." #Blackhawks

That explanation probably won’t go over so well. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of punishment the NHL hands down.
