Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy was fined $10,000 for his outburst and shouting match with Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau during a home game Wednesday night.

Roy nearly pushed over the glass between the two teams at the end of the game, which Colorado won convincingly 6-1.

The 47-year-old coach was upset about what he thought should've been a penalty against the Ducks for a "knee-on-knee" by defenseman Ben Lovejoy against Nathan MacKinnon.

"I was not very happy first of all seeing their defenseman kneeing our guy. That was a knee-on-knee. That should have been a penalty, in my opinion. … I don’t think this game needs that type of cheap shot.

Boudreau responded after the game, saying Roy was out of line, according to the Ducks' official Twitter account:

"A coach has no right to start yapping at players. I told him it's bush league."

Boudreau went on to say after the game that Roy will be "in for a long year" if he coaches every game like he did Wednesday's against the Ducks, according to the Los Angeles Times:

"He's going to be in for a long year if he's going to yell at every player and yell at the refs every stoppage in play. It's just not the way the game is played."
