Bryan Murray v. Jim Fox
I'm trying my best to find some information on the altercation between Ottawa Senators coach Bryan Murray and LA Kings Fox network broadcaster Jim Fox, but I can't seem to find any reference to it online.
Fox, a former King himself, was critical of Murray's coaching strategy in what was a rough-and-tumble game in Ottawa last night. One of the two confronted the other, words were exchanged and — that's all I've got for you at this point folks. The whole scenario makes you wonder if objectivity is a desired commodity in a hockey broadcaster any more.
I saw a good portion of the game, but I didn't catch what Fox thought Murray had done wrong. His team, after all, was up 5-1 fairly early into the third period and had little to gain from any extended altercations. I certainly can't criticize a team that grows tired of Sean Avery's on-ice antics.
Here's hoping Chris McMurtry has more on this game later today. (Maybe he knows why the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Tim Gleason wanted to fight 6-foot-9 Zdeno Chara.)
