We all saw what looked like a moment of confrontation Wednesday night, between Nathan MacKinnon and Jared Bednar, on the Avalanche bench with about eight seconds left in a 5-3 loss to the Calgary Flames.
Sportsnet hockey analyst Kelly Hrudey said he thought MacKinnon said “just do your job” to his coach. MacKinnon slammed his water bottle against the bench, then, in a moment of unintentional comedy, fell backward off his seat and had to be pulled back up by teammate Gabe Landeskog. Bednar, for his part, appeared to grimace after being yelled at by MacKinnon.
