ENGLEWOOD — Patrick Roy says he has been fined $10,000 by the NHL on Thursday for his emotional outburst the night before in his Colorado Avalanche coaching debut.

Soon after the final horn of a 6-1 win, Roy yelled at Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau and then pounded on the glass partition separating the two benches. Roy was livid over a late knee-to-knee hit on rookie Nathan MacKinnon.

Roy said he will "always defend my players."

The animated Hall of Fame goalie was far from pleased with Boudreau, who took exception to Roy talking to his players and referees. Roy said: "What Boudreau said was all lies. ... When you're lying, this is classless."

Captain Gabriel Landeskog missed practice Thursday with a leg injury. Roy said he's being examined by a doctor.
