The New York Rangers head coach, Peter Laviolette, opened up on his fiery exchange with the New Jersey Devils head coach Travis Green in the wild brawl last night.

If you missed it, last night, in the Rangers' game against the Devils, a wild brawl emerged two seconds after the first face-off.
With the rivalry between both teams reaching new levels this season, thanks to Matt Rempe, we knew that this final clash of the year between them was going to be intense, and it was.
All ten players got involved in a massive brawl: Rempe fought with MacDermid, Kevin Bahl with Barclay Goodrow, Curtis Lazar with James Vesey, Jacob Trouba with Chris Tierney and John Marino with K'Andre Miller.
Peter Laviolette and Travis Green, the head coaches, also got involved, by screaming at each other from their benches.

This incident led to 162 penalty minutes
being handed out and eight players being ejected.
After the game, head coach Peter Laviolette shared his thoughts on the incident.

In his post-game press conference, reporters asked Laviolette to share his thoughts about the brawl, especially if he knew it was going to happen:
"No. Our guys were reacting to what was happening on the ice. I thought they did a fantastic job, all five of them."

Later, he had to talk about his discussion with Travis Green, the Devils' head coach:
"There's obviously a little bit between the two teams, I just think the emotions get in there. How's that for vague?"

This was the last time that both teams were set to play against each other this season. We can't wait to see what will happen next year!
