David Backes ‘jumps’ Nathan MacKinnon, and Patrick Roy is not amused

Patrick Roy was not happy after his Colorado Avalanche defeated the St. Louis Blues 4-0 on Saturday--during what was part of a much larger and nastier set of scraps between the two teams (as Puck Daddy's Jen Neale notes)...

Here's the hit in question--and, uh, Roy...Has a point?

Wait… You mean St. Louis plays dirty when the game is out of reach?

Why… I have never seen that before…

Roy should be the last person to call the kettle black.  He’s had his share of gutless moves forcing unwilling goalies to fight him to feed his ego.

Who jumped who? Backes checks mckinnon and mckinnon takes backes down, no?

Consider the Reputation (of Backes). and, this followed a hit on Landeskog earlier in the game, no?  I’m sure Backes was looking for it.

Same game, from Fred Murtz…

Brenden Morrow gets a major penalty for cross-checking John Mitchell…

Patrick Bordeleau goes after Kevin Shattnekirk...

Line brawl! It’s time for a line brawl!;

And here’s Hitchcock’s presser.
