After Montreal’s Lars Eller was left unconscious and bleeding on the ice during game 1 of the Senators-Canadiens playoff series, Ottawa coach Paul MacLean offered his thoughts on Eric Gryba’s hit. Per The Globe And Mail:  (If I’m Eller), I’m really mad at player 61, whoever he is, because he passed me the puck in the middle of the rink when I wasn’t looking,” said MacLean. “That’s always been a dangerous place as far as I know. Ever since I’ve been playing this game, that’s a dangerous place to be — bad things happen.” Player 61 is of course Montreal defenseman Raphael Diaz, who made the suicide pass that determined Eller’s fate. Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust didn’t take kindly to Coach MacLean’s comments: #bbpBox_330352446889156608 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_330352446889156608 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }Brandon Prust: "we don't care what that bug-eyed fat walrus say."-on Paul MacLean.about 1 hour ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®ReplyRetweetFavorite@RenLavoieRDSRenaud LavoiePrust’s relationship with Coach MacLean goes back to last season when he was a New York Ranger playing in a physical, nasty playoff series against Ottawa.

No word yet on whether Gryba will be suspended. His hearing was scheduled over the phone, so if he is suspended, it can only be for five games or less.   Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
