Parise: 'Don't Expect Dirty Series Going Forward'

May 22, 2012 3:27 PM EST

Zach Parise doesn't expect the animosity between the Devils and the Rangers to boil over through the rest of the series.

"I don't expect it to be a dirty series by any means going forward," Parise said during a Tuesday conference.

During the third period of the Devils' Game 4 victory Monday, Devils coach Peter DeBoer and Rangers coach John Tortorella got into a shouting match from their benches following a melee in front of the net in which Rangers forward Mike Rupp punched Devils goalie Martin Brodeur.

"I don't know if something just happened to push him over the edge," Parise said. "That's fine with us."
