NHL Video: 5 Angriest Coaches in Hockey

1 of 6

    Some hockey coaches are calm, cool and collected during games. Some barely appear to move a piece of gum from one side of their mouth to the other.

    Not many, though.

    NHL history is chock-full of great examples of coaches with a super-short fuse. Between Joel Quenneville's forehead turning the same color as the Blackhawks' home sweaters to John Tortorella inviting media to meet him outside, hockey has given us a lot of great coach moments.

    Here are a few of those moments, caught on film.

    A big part of his vocabulary stops at four letters.

2. Bruce Boudreau

    The runaway winner from last year's NHL footage on HBO, he's a lot of fun to watch.

    It's hard to come close to this man.
