Patrick Roy on Game 5 adjustments: 'Now it's our turn to put our balls on the table'

Patrick Roy's game plan for Game 5 seems pretty simple. And graphic.

The 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs are barely a week old and we've already seen a coach fined for grabbing his crotch in protest of a call and a player get fined for giving a cup check on an unsuspecting opponent.

Then, on Friday, we had Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy talking about the adjustments his team needs to make for Game 5 after losing back-to-back games against the Minnesota Wild. And, well, he didn't really leave much to the imagination.

"I think we're right there with them and now it's our turn to, sorry for the words, put our balls on the table."

Oh yes. That really happened. Here is the proof.

There isn't a more entertaining coach in the NHL right now. If he's not knocking over the glass to get at an opposing coach, he's trading jabs with them through the media. If he's not screaming at officials or his team with fire in his eyes, he's doing things strategically that no other coach in the league is doing. And if he's not doing any of that, he's talking about balls.
