Patrick Roy brought so much of his legendary intensity to his NHL coaching debut that he had to make more room for it behind the Colorado Avalanche bench.
Patrick Roy brought so much of his legendary intensity to his NHL coaching debut that he had to make more room for it behind the Colorado Avalanche bench.

The Hall of Fame goaltender and four-time Stanley Cup champion was in vintage form Wednesday night when he got into a heated exchange with Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau.

After the final horn of Colorado's 6-1 hammering of Anaheim, Roy expressed his displeasure to the Ducks about their defenceman Ben Lovejoy going for a low and seemingly knee-on-knee hit on Avs rookie Nathan MacKinnon.

Roy and Boudreau are seen shouting and pointing fingers at each other before Roy shoves the glass partition between them -- twice. Roy was eventually ushered away by his assistant coaches before a full-on bench brawl ensued.
