It appears that there is a war of words brewing between two of the best goaltenders in the business.

During Thursday's game between the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins, Rangers' goalie Henrik Lundqvist threw a bit of a tantrum after getting accidentally run into by teammate Ryan McDonagh. The collision forced Lundqvist to leave the game with neck spasms, but not before he decided to push the net over in disgust at the fact that there was no whistle on the play.

Pittsburgh Penguins' goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was asked about Lundqvist's reaction to the play, and needless to say, he didn't seem all that impressed. When asked if he would ever react that way, he responded, “No, that’s baby stuff,” as per Pens Inside Scoop.

Lundqvist received a two-minute penalty for his antics, and the Penguins wound up winning the game by a score of 4-1.

Let's hope these two teams wind up meeting at some point in the playoffs.
