Alain Vigneault fired back swiftly, directly and fiercely Saturday morning at Claude Julien, responding to the Boston Bruins coach’s Friday comments that Henrik Lundqvist had done “some acting” on a right knee to the head from Bruins forward Brad Marchand.
“Well, (the Rangers public relations staff) filled me in a little bit on what was said after the game,” Vigneault said. “I mean it’s a little disappointing. Obviously everybody saw the knee to the head. The comments on Hank were very inappropriate. The way Hank conducts himself, on the ice, away from the rink, off the ice, the example that he sets. Who would you rather have as a son, Henrik Lundqvist or Brad Marchand? For him to say things like that about Hank, totally wrong, and probably Claude is getting a little older and needs to check his eyesight.”
