Jagr Challenged to Fight During KHL Playoff Game . . . By His Coach?

Quote:
"He [Summanen, the coach] made Jaromir Jagr the scapegoat of the playoffs. Summanen even went after Jagr with his fists after [a Game 6 victory] in Magnitogorsk. He was jumping around [Jagr], challenged him to a fight. Jagr, of course, didn't want to fight."
Clearly Jagr should've stayed in the NHL.

This happened after Game 6 of the series in which his team was eliminated. The coach was subsequently fired, during the middle of Game 7.

The KHL is an even bigger circus than I thought.
