Patrick Roy dominated in-net for the Colorado Avalanche in the ‘90s and early 2000s. Now the team’s coach, the Hall of Famer won his very first game behind the team in the Avs’ season-opening win against the Ducks.
But that didn’t stop him from going nuts as the final buzzer sounded on a 6-1 win.
Anaheim defenseman Ben Lovejoy caught Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon with what appeared to be a knee-on-knee hit very late in the contest. The refs let the play go (presumably because it was 6-0 at the time). The no-call eventually led to a Jakob Silfverberg goal, ending Semyon Varlamov’s shutout with a mere seven seconds remaining in the contest.
That is the type of stuff that would tick off any former goalie, and obviously Roy is no exception. Watch him yell at the opposing bench, and then even start shoving the glass partition between the two.
Welcome back, Patrick. Welcome back, RAAAAGE.
