With the Flyers losing game 2 last night, Philadelphia Flyer’s Chris Pronger again collected the puck at the end of the game as he did in game 1. Ben Eager came over and had some words for Pronger. Watch the video below of the incident and comments from both Eager and Pronger are below.
Ben Eager’s comments after the game about what happened (courtesy of PuckDaddy):
“Nothing, really. Just a little post game chat,” said Eager. “He’s been picking the pucks up after the game, and I just told him he can keep it.”
Chris Pronger was asked a few questions from media after the game about it (again courtesy of PuckDaddy, link above):
“I couldn’t hear him, I don’t speak gibberish,” said Pronger, who picked up a misconduct penalty at the very end and got into it with Eager.
Where’s the puck, Pronger was asked.
“It’s in the garbage,” Pronger replied. “Where it belongs.”
You shot a towel at Eager when he complained?
“So what,” Pronger replied.
You’re collecting pucks now?
“Why not? What’s wrong? It’s sitting there. What else is gonna happen to it? It’s sitting there. Sure, why not. You got a problem with that?”
Are you gonna sell it on eBay?
“I don’t know. Apparently, it got him upset. So I guess it worked, didn’t it? It’s too bad. I guess little things amuse little minds.”
You can watch below Pronger taking the pucks at the end of games 1 and 2 (near the end of the video).
