The New Jersey Devils head coach got a little upset last night when questioned about player deployment.
The Devils fell to an inferior team in regulation despite clawing their way back and tying the game in the third period.
Elsewhere, New Jersey’s head coach wasn’t the only one to get a little spicy postgame last night. It happened in Florida, too. Plus, Pittsburgh’s GM addresses whether he will or won’t trade a significant forward, and a former NHLer unretires.
Let’s do that hockey.
