Ottawa Senators forward Nick Foligno had some words for Penguins captain Sidney Crosby after the Senators 6-3 loss on Friday night.

After Foligno fell over Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury in the third period, Crosby responded by cross-checking the Senators forward twice. Foligno answered back with a cross-check of his own before Crosby delivered an elbow to the head of Foligno. 

At that point, Penguins forward Chris Kunitz jumped in and a scrum ensued.

"It's not a big deal, but it is something that he preached all summer about that we should limit that and then he goes and does it, so I was just a little disappointed," Foligno said. "But, you know, that's a small part of the game and it's over now."

Crosby was assessed a two-minute elbowing penalty on the play while Foligno received a roughing minor.
