Patrick Roy and Bruce Boudreau get in huge fight (Video)

Patrick Roy is in his first year as coach of the Colorado Avalanche, and he wasted no time showing the passion that made him a fiery player.

Roy got into a massive yelling match with Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau after the Avs’ 6-1 win on Wednesday night. There were a few incidents on ice in the final minute of the contest that preceded the shouting match between the coaches.

With around 30 seconds left, Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy seemed to go out of his way to trip Nathan MacKinnon by the boards. Then with seven seconds left, the Ducks scored their first and only goal of the game. On the ensuing faceoff, a few players began to scrap by the benches, which led to the fight between the coaches after the horn sounded.

Roy called out the Ducks for the “cheap shot” on Lovejoy, while Boudreau called Roy “bush league.”

“A coach has no right to start yapping at players. I told him it’s bush league,” Boudreau said after the game.

Patrick Roy still has best Glove Hand in League

Between Peyton actually winning, Reche’s crazy eyes, dudes with mullets winning golf tourneys, the Bob Sanders love affair, and Melo coming back - it was kind of easy to overlook a nice news item from the weekend.  Apparently former 3 time Vezina Trophy winner and 4 time Stanley Cup champion of the Canadiens and Avalanche, goaltender Patrick Roy, still has the best glove hand in the biz.  The Hall of Famer owns and coaches the Quebec City Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey league and is accused of hitting an opposing team’s owner following a junior hockey game.  From the Denver Post, 

“Police say about 50 fans of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens prevented the visiting players from boarding their team bus after a Friday night game.  Roy reportedly then got off the bus and attacked the Sagueneens’ owner.”

Well, I guess things could’ve been worse.  He could’ve made like Albert Belle and tried to run the fans over I guess. 

By the way, if anyone has a clue (without the aid of a search engine) what the **** a Sagueneen is, please let me know.
