Video: Pronger shoots a towel at Eager after Game 2

Hawks tough guy Ben Eager called Game 2 ''a step in the right direction.'' The physical intensity and post-whistle shoving and jawing were all up his alley.

''There was a lot more checks thrown, a lot more stuff after the whistles,'' Eager said. ''Guys are starting to get after each other. The more you play against another team, especially in the Cup finals, there's going to be some dislike, and I expect it to be no different [tonight].''

Eager got into it with Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger after Game 2 had ended and Pronger picked up the puck. Each received a 10-minute misconduct penalty.

''He's been picking the pucks up after the game, and I just told him he can keep it,'' Eager said.

Pronger then sent a towel at Eager, a former Flyer. Laviolette definitely got a kick out of the situation.

''It's kind of comical,'' Laviolette said. ''If Chris Pronger wants the puck, then he can have it, as far as I'm concerned.''
