Martin St-Louis responded very abruptly to a question about Sean Farrell before the game

But lately, he seems to be a bit short-tempered. He confronted a reporter a few days ago with a question (the reporter refused to answer so as not to embarrass himself) and today, let's just say that the Habs head coach didn't seem to be in a very good mood when it came time to answer a question about Sean Farrell.
A reporter began his question with: "Why did you feel like maybe he was comfortable?"
St. Louis cut him off, saying it was a question for Kent (Hughes).
Another reporter continued, "I don't understand, it's a question for Kent? Aren't you the one doing your lineup?"
St. Louis simply repeated, "Yeah, it's a question for Kent" while giving a rather intense look to the person who had just questioned him.
Here's the clip:
We won't start to say that he responded this way for this or that reason, we just don't know. But let's just say it's surprising coming from St. Louis, who always seems ready to talk about and compliment his players. The reporters didn't argue further, and it's perfectly understandable why, but it will be interesting to see if they come back with questions about the young man after the game.
