It’s only been one game, and new Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy has already made a total ass of himself. Somehow I’m not surprised.
While the Ducks trailed the Avs 6-0 with 30 seconds to go, Ben Lovejoy put his leg out and caught 2012 first overall pick Nathan MacKinnon with a hit in the neutral zone. Roy sure didn’t like that. And he let former Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau know once the game ended.
This is just surreal. Roy was given a game misconduct and a two-minute bench penalty for going on the ice. Boudreau was not penalized.
I feel like this is what it’s like to helplessly watch a grandfather get assaulted.
Boudreau said he didn't like Roy continually "yapping" at his players. Said Lovejoy tripped MacKinnon but Roy called it a "cheap shot."

Roy smashed through a wall, but Boudreau is shaped like the Kool-Aid man. Is that irony?
