The Montreal Canadiens pulled off an improbable comeback tonight, defeating the Boston Bruins 3-1 in game seven.
(Actually, I think I wrote that wrong. Let me try again.)
The universe decided it hated Zdeno Chara, so Montreal got ANOTHER fluky game seven win over a team way better than them.
(Okay, that’s better.)
Not kidding. Chara was bad. The 6’9” Norris trophy winner scored an own goal, committed two penalties, slipped on multiple invisible bananas, and had one particularly weird incident involving Brendan Gallagher and a temporary suspension of the rules of physics.
Let’s take a gander.
Chara’s whoopsie put the Canadiens up 3-1, with less than three minutes to go in the third period, essentially ending the game.
This is not so graceful.
Early in the game, the universe showed its cards by messing with the big ogre. As Chara tried to hercules check teeny tiny little Gallagher into the boards, the Canadiens center lost control of his stick. His lumber flew into the air, nearly impaling a Bruins fan.
Later Gallagher would get The Big Z back. Timbeeeerrrrrr!
Poor Chara. Poor Bruins.
Wait, nevermind. They’ve won a Cup, they’ve got the Presidents Trophy, and they could sweep the Vezina, Norris, and Selke. I have no sympathy at all.
