NEW YORK (AP) – The NHL has fined Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi $50,000 for his comments questioning the integrity of league vice president Mike Murphy.

Lombardi was upset after a disputed goal was allowed to stand during his team’s 2-0 loss to Phoenix on Thursday night.

Replays appear to show the puck being high-sticked into the net but officials in the league’s video room in Toronto decided not to overturn the on-ice call after reviewing tape.

After the game, Lombardi told a reporter for the Kings website that Murphy wouldn’t give his team a favorable call because he once lost out on the GM job in Los Angeles.

Murphy played for the Kings during his NHL career and is a former coach of the team. He is currently in charge of goal reviews for the league.
