Is Wednesday night a must-win for Canadians?
Some people will say no, but considering the Chargers’ dominance in the first game (unbalanced wins of 5-1 on the scoring table and on the ice), the Canadians could not make it 2-0 in the Stanley Cup final. The score returned to Montreal.
“We have been saying the same thing all the time and really don’t care,” forward Brendan Gallagher said when asked about his team being excluded. “We know what we are as a hockey team and we trust each other. We believe that when we play the way we need, we will play our game, we decide the style of hockey, and we can compete with anyone. I Think we have shown this through three rounds. In the first game, we got rid of that…make the game a little too easy [for] they.
“Tonight just go back to our game and make sure we control the style of the game here.”
By the way, Gallagher showed his beaten face, which was the result of his first fall while arguing with Mikhail Sergachev in the first game. He was diagnosed with a concussion and the game was fine. However, due to the COVID-19 agreement, Montreal will once again be absent from head coach Dominique Ducharme.
Although Ducham continues to be absent from the Canadians’ bench, there will be no key players from Alex Kelown on the Chargers’ bench. The winger blocked Jeff Petri’s shot in the second quarter of the first game and did not participate in the rest of the game after sliding a shift in the third quarter. He tied for second place in the playoffs with 8 goals, so his injury created a big hole in the lineup.
“The killer is an important part of our team,” forward Taylor Johnson said. “He takes up a lot of time, playing in various situations. Everyone has to play a different role. This is the greatness of our team, we have this depth. It will require everyone.
In the battle between the Chargers and the Canadians in the Stanley Cup final, sports news mastered all the action (All time in the east).
