Montreal Canadiens forward Scott Gomez and an assistant coach got into a shouting match at practice Tuesday. Assistant Randy Ladouceur apparently was upset at what he considered a lack of intensity during a drill. Gomez is among the league's highest-paid players but has only one goal this year for the struggling Canadiens. The spat continued for several minutes, first in front of other players before the men left to exchange words in a corner. Coach Randy Cunneyworth never intervened, saying later with a smile his assistant had the situation under control. Gomez also downplayed the outburst. He says he messed up a drill and the coach let him have it. He adds that such things happen every day.
