Robbie Ftorek: Bench Minor

In January 2000, the New Jersey Devils played a memorable game against the Detroit Red Wings. Particularly memorable for Devils coach Robbie Ftorek was the game's officiating. Indeed, Ftorek was so irate over one call that he threw an article on the ice. The article in question? One of the team's benches!

[The aftermath: New Jersey lost the game, Ftorek received a one-game suspension (and a $10,000 fine), and Devils goalie Martin Brodeur quipped that "it's the first time that I can recall [officials] calling a bench minor penalty that really fit the crime."]
