With just one game in the books, NHL fans got - for better or worse - a taste of vintage Patrick Roy. Nick Collison Jersey . The Hall of Fame goaltender-turned-head coach of the Colorado Avalanche showed the hockey world on Wednesday night that he was just as animated and passionate as ever. With six seconds left and Colorado up 6-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks, Roy lost his temper over a non-call for a trip on centre Nathan MacKinnon. "That should have been a penalty, in my opinion," said Roy, who received a game misconduct penalty. "I dont think this league needs that type of cheap shot." He then barked at Anaheims players and then at Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, who responded in (not so) kind. Roy then pushed against the glass partition, swaying it over towards Boudreau. "I didnt expect that," Boudreau said after the game. "Its not our job to go back and forth with their players. All of a sudden, I told him, Thats bull, thats bush league, and he did what he did. (Hes) going to be in for a long year, if hes going to yell at every player and yell at the refs at every stoppage of play. Its not the way the game is played." The passion is back. But is it too much? Roy, who spent his time away from the NHL with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey Leagues Quebec Remparts, has been known to let opposing players, coaches and officials have it. But coaching junior is much different than being behind the bench in the top professional level. Roy was an emotional player with the Avalanche and the Montreal Canadiens. He was an emotional coach with the Remparts. But after what happened in his first NHL game behind the bench, should he be dialing that emotion down? Will his emotion get his players fired up or will they tune him out? And who is going to change the channel when a coach - in any sport - has an outburst like Roy had? Both sides of the argument could easily be summarized by TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on Wednesday night. "Patrick Roy erupts in anger at Bruce Boudreau at the buzzer," he first tweeted. "Guessing Lovejoy hit on MacKinnon. Wont be boring with Patrick around! "Roy has reason to be upset with that hit on MacKinnon, but hes going to have to learn to keep his temper controlled. Still, got to admit having Roy back in the NHL is going to be a fun ride. Great fodder. And his team looked mighty good tonight." That all said, we ask you this: Did you like the level of passion and emotion that Patrick Roy brought behind the bench on Wednesday night, or did he go too far? As always, its Your! Call. Dennis Johnson Jersey . Lawries batting helmet hit an umpire during his ninth-inning outburst in the Jays 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. The 22-year-old threw his helmet to the ground and it bounced up and hit home plate umpire Bill Miller on the right hip after Lawrie was called out on strikes for the second out. Pete Cross Jersey . Chris Heisey connected for his first grand slam and Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in a career high-tying four runs as Cincinnati took advantage of Tampa Bays depleted pitching staff for a 12-4 victory on Sunday. https://www.cheapthunder.com/241h-brent-barry-jersey-thunder.html .com) - Ben Lovejoy tallied a goal and an assist as the Anaheim Ducks cruised into the All-Star break with a 6-3 victory against the Calgary Flames.Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Teddy Bridgewater completed 21-of-31 passes for 310 yards and two touchdowns to lead eighth-ranked Louisville to a 24-10 win over Rutgers on Thursday. Bridgewater threw one interception and fumbled once, but was able to overcome the miscues to lead the Cardinals (6-0, 2-0 AAC) to victory. "It was a decent performance," Bridgewater said. "I left a couple of throws on the field. I battled adversity, but it was a decent performance. It was a great team effort, the guys laid it all on the line." Senorise Perry carried the ball 13 times for 104 yards and a touchdown and Kai De La Cruz and Eli Rogers each had a touchdown reception for Louisville, which has won eight straight games dating back to last season. The Cards were without top receiver DeVante Parker, who injured his shoulder in last weeks 30-7 win over Temple. Gary Nova completed 19-of-35 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown but threw four interceptions, including a pair of picks late in the fourth quarter for the Scarlet Knights (4-2, 1-1), who had won four straight games entering the contest. "There are certain things you have to do in games like this because your margin of error is so small," Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said. "We didnt do those things this evening. The Cardinals came away with points on three of their first four drives. After leading the Cardinals down to the Rutgers seven, Bridgewaters pass to De La Cruz fell incomplete, and Louisville settled for a 24-yard John Wallace fieldd goal. Chris Paul Jersey. . Louisville punted on its next touch, but the Cardinals got the ball right back as James Burgess picked off Nova and returned it to the Rutgers 35. Two plays later, and less than a minute into the second quarter, Bridgewater connected with De La Cruz for a 34-yard touchdown. Perrys 1-yard TD plunge capped a 7-play, 80-yard drive to give Louisville a 17-0 lead with just over eight minutes remaining in the first half. Nova got the Knights on the board with his 1-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Kroft to make it 17-7 at the break. Kyle Federico drilled a 36-yard field goal early in the fourth to pull Rutgers within a touchdown. Bridgewater drove deep into Rutgers territory on the ensuing drive, but was sacked and fumbled on the 5-yard line, and the Scarlet Knights took over. Nova, though, threw an interception four plays later. Louisville looked to make it a 10-point game, but Wallace missed a 45-yarder with just under six minutes left to keep Rutgers hopes alive. Those hopes were quickly erased as Nova was picked off once again. Bridgewater then connected with Rogers for a 6-yard touchdown to seal the win. Game Notes Thursday marked the last conference meeting between the two schools. Rutgers will become a member of the ACC next season. Damian Copeland caught eight passes for 115 yards for Louisville ... De La Cruz left the game in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury ... Rutgers holds a narrow 7-6 advantage in the all-time series ... Nova has eight interceptions this season. ' ' '
