ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Patrick Roy says he has been fined $10,000 by the NHL on Thursday for his emotional outburst the night before in his Colorado Avalanche coaching debut.
Soon after the final horn of a 6-1 win, Roy yelled at Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau and then pounded on the glass partition separating the two benches. Roy was livid over a late knee-to-knee hit on rookie Nathan MacKinnon.
Roy said he will ``always defend my players.''
The animated Hall of Fame goalie was far from pleased with Boudreau, who took exception to Roy talking to his players and referees. Roy said: ``What Boudreau said was all lies. ... When you're lying, this is classless.''
Captain Gabriel Landeskog missed practice Thursday with a leg injury. Roy said he's being examined by a doctor.
