The war of words didn’t end there.

Laviolette called Pittsburgh’s actions “gutless” while Bylsma said Brayden Schenn’s cross-check on Sidney Crosby was a cheap shot — “clearly a guy targeting a player,” the Penguins head coach contended.

Granato didn’t address reporters following the game.

The $12,500 in accrued fines will go towards the NHL Foundation.
