Video: Stepan, Prust shake hands after series ends

May 29, 2014, 11:21 PM EDT

For all the heat between the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers, friendship sure came up often.

Michel Therrien and Alain Vigneault said that they would put their friendship on hold for the two-or-so weeks of this conference final series. Brandon Prust professed regret regarding his hit on Derek Stepan, particularly since he feels like his former Rangers teammate is/was his friend.

One can read too much into interactions like these, yet it seemed like Stepan and Prust made amends during the handshake line tradition after the Rangers bounced the Habs in Game 6:

We’ll make sure there aren’t any Milan Lucic-type controversies before getting too warm-and-fuzzy, though.

    Indeed, what an exchange…it likely went like this.

    Prust – Sorry man, no hard feelings, good luck next round.

    Stepan – grrrrsmmmbtchbstrdyoosckkkk

    Prust – Oh yea, we’ll do this when the wire comes out.

    Prust only said he was sorry to Stepan because he dosen’t want to pay for a hotel room when he visits NYC this summer .

    As they should have.

    That’s hockey and that’s always been the way hockey players conduct themselves.

    The game and tradition is sure as hell much bigger than these two schleps.
