Emotions ran high at an Ottawa Senators scrimmage Sunday, and Bobby Ryan is standing by his actions.

After roster hopeful Patrick Sieloff delivered a highly questionable hit on Clarke MacArthur that resulted in another concussion for the winger, Bobby Ryan immediately came to MacArthur's defense by dropping the gloves.

After a local reporter said Ryan did the right thing, a fan retorted, causing Ryan to jump into the conversation and say his peace.

There's no word on whether MacArthur will be able to return to training camp or even suit up in the regular season, while Sieloff's tenure with the club is likely over as quick as it started.

Ryan, however, surely earned some points in the locker room for his reaction, even if not every fan gets it.
