The handshake line after the Los Angeles-Phoenix Western final got a bit animated Tuesday night, with some Coyotes criticizing the Kings' Dustin Brown for his hit on Michal Roszival late in Game 5. The Kings' Dustin Penner also was the target of a verbal jab.

"I got chirped in line, too, for my headlock I put on (Antoine) Vermette in Game 2," Penner told LA Kings Insider. "He wanted to rehash that. I was a little surprised."

Penner said he responded: " 'I don't have time to talk, right now, about this. I've got a flight to catch.' "

The Coyotes' Roszival is on crutches with a knee injury stemming from the Brown hit.
