Chris Neil kicked back at the The Mule Friday.

The Senators’ tough guy didn’t like being accused by Detroit Red Wings winger Johan Franzen of only showing up at the end of games to make himself noticed after Thursday’s 6-1 loss.

Neil wasn’t happy, at all. The incident happened at the end of the game when it was completely out of reach and Neil felt that he’d gotten a stick from Franzen to start the trouble.
