Although it is difficult to expect anything other than the inevitable postponement, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Tampa Bay Chargers 3-2 in overtime on Monday night, at least avoiding being caught in the Stanley Cup final. The shame swept away. The series now supports the Chargers with a score of 3-1, and the fifth game is scheduled for Wednesday night in Tampa.
Different from the first three games of the series, the Montreal team played against the skill and relentless pressure on Tampa Bay from start to finish. The Canadians made it to the scoreboard for the first time in the finals, although Considering the performance of the Canadians goalkeeper Carey Price (Carey Price) is playing hot potato with ice hockey, first sent the ball out, and then immediately made a powerful save, which is a bit surprising that the Chargers did not lead by three goals. At 15 minutes and 39 seconds of the first quarter, Nick Suzuki used the lightning team’s rare defensive positioning error to pass the ball from behind the lightning net to the open Josh Anderson, who threw the ball past Tampa Bay goalkeeper Andre Vassilie Not only was the Montreal team the first to score first in the series, but for the first time leading, period. So far, the Canadians’ defense has been unable to keep up with the Chargers’ fierce offense until Barclays Gudrow used Ryan McDonagh’s clever play in the defensive zone late in the second quarter. Montreal’s mistakes buried the lead. A past price.
The Canadian regained the lead early in the third quarter when Alexander Romanov shot from a high point and somehow penetrated everyone and everything. The Chargers evened the score five minutes later, thanks to Pat Maroon’s two-on-one match. It is worth mentioning that both teams, especially Montreal, did not show discipline. The Canadians had to stop five Chargers players, so there are many opportunities for power to play. At the end of the third quarter, Montreal tried to kill the last one, because Gao insisted on double minors, which continued into overtime. They succeeded, and Anderson scored his second goal of the game shortly thereafter.
As mentioned earlier, the Canadians are unlikely to win the next two games and force them into the decisive seventh game. But unless you are a lightning fan, it will be fun to watch.
