If there is only one scene to describe how badly the Chargers bullied the Canadians in the first game of the Stanley Cup final, it would be 13 minutes and 42 seconds of the third quarter. Brendan Gallagher tried (but failed) to fight Mikhail Sergachev in Tampa Bay, and eventually sweated profusely from his troubles.
The incident happened shortly after the lightning goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevsky prevented Montreal’s Alturi Raikkonen from shooting, and Tampa led 4-1; Gallagher tried to cross-check Sergachev , But the latter’s teammate Black Coleman slipped in from behind, grabbed Gallagher’s head, and pulled his helmet off his head. Later, Sergachev caught Gallagher and eventually threw him to the ground.
Unfortunately for the right wing of the Canadians, his head hit the ice, causing blood to pour out of his face (Warning: Content that may be disturbing):
Gallagher left the game and Coleman got two minutes of playing time because of his brutality. This incident is just one of several creepy moments throughout the game, although it is clear that Tampa is the more powerful team in the 5-1 victory.
Surprisingly, Tampa’s hit count was 57, while Montreal’s hit count was 58. Compared with the Canadians’ four times, Bolt also had three penalty kicks, reducing the free throw time by two minutes. For his part, Gallagher only made two of three shots in this loss.
The forward, who became a defensive force with center Philip Danault, had a difficult night after a jumper. The video showed him stepping on the ice to warm up, and stepping on the puck caused him to fall. This may be a sign that the night is about to pass. He seems to be fine. Gallagher, a notorious pest, also messed up in the first stage, and the head was cross-checked by Barclay Goodro. The Lightning striker was called but Montreal was unable to take advantage of man.
The second game of the Stanley Cup final will be held in Tampa Bay at 8pm on Wednesday.
