Brendan Gallagher received two good blocks from Jeremy Swayman after making contact with the Bruins goaltender in the third period. If he had seen Gallagher’s face so close, Swayman would have liked to see the face of the goaltender on the other end of the ice, Samuel Montembault.
“I saw he was waving at me,” Montembault said. He wanted me to go, but I didn’t want to. I told Martin (St. Louis) that I don’t hit hard enough anyway. I think defeat will hurt him more.
“I raised my arm to show him I was there,” Swayman admitted in an interview with his colleague Jonathan Bernier and other Boston clerks. But nothing happened, there is no need to talk about it.”
At the heart of this altercation, Brendan Gallagher refused to reveal the content of his conversation with the masked Bruins man.
“If I had to sum it up, I would say I told him he wasn’t right,” Gallagher replied with a smile. But you can read all the details in my autobiography that will be published in ten years!
Aside from this rejected call, Montembault played a strong game, making 25 saves.
“We beat the Bruins on Saturday night and the Alouettes won to get to the Gray Cup, it was a really great day for Montreal fans.”
Montembault watched parts of an Alouettes game in the late afternoon while eating a bowl of Grau. Successful recipe for number 35.
Kaiden Guhle discovered competing with the Bruins for the first time. He was injured at the end of the season and has yet to play against Massachusetts. He organized himself not to forget this first meeting with the winning goal in extra time, an assist for Gallagher’s goal, five blocked shots and a +2 score.

“I’m happier with the blocked shots, we needed to kill three on five,” Gohle said. I wasn’t the only one who blocked shots, Kofi (Kovacevic) did the same.
Guhle showed his courage once again by putting himself in the shooting line of David Pastrnak, one of the most powerful scorers in the NHL.
“It’s scary? Yes and no. It’s more painful when you see the ball in the back of the net.”
“He’s been playing like this since he moved to the NHL last year,” Gallagher added of Gohle. He’s a key defender for us. He played a full match. When you look into the locker room before a game, you know you can count on him, no matter the opposing team.
Good old Gallagher
Still used on the right wing of the third line alongside Sean Monahan and Tanner Pearson, Gallagher gives the feeling of being a player in complete rebirth this season. He now has five goals and eight points after 14 games.
“It’s great to see him playing like that,” Gohle said. (Gallagher) has had a tough season due to injuries. He’s healthy and having a great time on the ice.
“Since the start of the year, Galli has looked very much like the same player we’ve seen for a long time here in Montreal,” St. Louis added. He’s in a good place physically and mentally. The NHL is not an easy league, it’s hard to play when you’re not 100%. I’m happy for his success in scoring goals. But with Gally, there are many things that cannot be read on the scorecard.
