There were some harsh words spoken between the coaches after the Blues' 4-1 win at Colorado. Avalanche coach Patrick Roy took aim at Blues skipper Ken Hitchcock.

“You know what, I was very mad at the end because I have been jabbed by different coaches around the league, especially Hitchcock when he said that was junior stuff, talking to players, talking to the referees,” Roy told The Denver Post.

“But I saw a guy on the other side who was talking to players and then was also talking to the referee and got the referee (mad).

“Seems to me that there’s different rules for everybody in this league. I guess the old guys are allowed to do whatever they want and I guess us, because we are younger, we are not allowed to say anything. I am a little (mad) about that.”

Informed of Roy's comments, the 61-year old Hitchcock offered some terse advice.

“Oh, give me a break," he told the messenger. "Tell Patrick to shut the (expletive) up.”

Colorado versus St. Louis. It's not just for breakfast anymore.
