If the second game on Wednesday night is not a win for the Canadians, then the third game on Friday will definitely be.
Although Montreal defeated Tampa Bay in the second game of the seven-game series, it still lost the game 3-1 (if you haven’t watched Blake Coleman scores,What are you waiting for? ) And fell behind 2-0. So what should the team do now?
“We just need to keep going. I think we have 40 shots or whatever the last match was. Go ahead and get into (Andrei Vasilevsky’s) face,” Taylor Tofrey said, and then Added: “I don’t know, score.”
In this series, the Canadians’ scoring is very important. The team scored only two goals in the game against Vasilevskiy-a Jeff Petri shot hit two Lightning players, and a Nick Suzuki’s attack target. But they got shots, a total of 62 shots, including 43 shots in the second game.
One thing that can give the team a helping hand is the return of head coach Dominic Ducham, who missed games 3-6 against the Golden Cavaliers and the Stanley Cup final after testing positive for COVID in June The first two games. Although he is happy to come back, he doesn’t think things need to be adjusted.
“No, I don’t think this is the time to make major changes,” he said on Friday. “Look at the last game. Apart from the five or six games in the game, we will not change much. So we have to make sure to accept what we have done and get better… We know we are We didn’t play well in the first game. We knew we had a lot of room for improvement, but now that we have played the type of game we want to play, we know that we can do a little better and make a difference. “
Ducharme returns to the Canadians, but the Chargers will miss Alex Killorn again. The second-line winger blocked a shot from Petri in the first game and hasn’t played since a shift in the third quarter. This is a huge loss because he is not only a key striker, but also the first strong player to complete a penalty kick.
The other missing part is a crowded arena. The Canadian requested to increase the capacity of the Bell Center, but was refused. There will be only 3,500 fans in the building, and it is expected that there will be thousands of fans outside.
“Disappointing. Very disappointing,” Ducham said. “Although this may be a way of rewarding those who have been vaccinated twice, it may be a way of inspiring more people to get vaccinated. It may be a way of rewarding our fans, those who have experienced this. I have been in isolation for 14 or 15 months and have the opportunity to participate in such an event. It is very special. Unfortunately, we will have 3,500 people inside, and maybe 25,000 people fighting together outside. It’s hard to see the logic.”
When the Canadians tried to regain the lead in the series against the Chargers, Sports News had already taken all the action (All time in the east).

Sergachev laughed when he heard the audience booing at the Bell Center. The kick heel is good.
