Rangers, Canadiens take fight off the ice, too, as tempers rise in increasingly tense series

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is angry his team has been portrayed as "dishonourable and dishonest" by the Montreal Canadiens and coach Michel Therrien.

Just hours before Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, Vigneault responded Sunday to questions regarding assistant coach Ulf Samuelsson watching the Canadiens practice on Saturday.

Therrien said there is always a "gentleman's agreement" between teams in a playoff series that coaches aren't permitted to attend practices. When Samuelsson was spotted, Therrien said Samuelsson was told he wasn't supposed to be there.

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
