Yeo laughs about coach fights, serious about revenge on Kings' Brown


The coach fight that nearly got physical between Colorado's Patrick Roy and Anaheim's Bruce Boudreau on Tuesday night spawned some solid questions at the Wild-Kings morning skate Thursday.

Wild head coach Mike Yeo laughed when was asked if he has ever been in verbal sparring session with another coach.

"I had a feeling I was gonna get asked about that. I'm getting ready," Yeo joked, according to the L.A. Times.

Seriously speaking, Yeo told KFAN radio that he still remembers the cheap shot Kings star Dustin Brown put on Jason Pominville last season. The hit concussed Pominville, forcing him to miss the majority of the final month of the season and part of the playoffs.

In other words, don't be surprised if Brown takes a hard revenge-shot from the Wild tonight.
