Well that was disappointing. The Golden Knights were up 2-1 with two minutes left on the clock in the third period. Of all the times for MAF to go full LOLMAF it would of course be right then. In classic fashion, he made a gigantic flub which allowed the Habs to tie up the game and then win it in overtime.
Ugh. They have a 2-1 series lead now. Tonight the Lightning play the Islanders at 8:00 p.m.. The Lightning are up 2-1 in that series.

And the Minnesota Wild have a little problem getting their star signed.

It’s pure speculation, but agents for European stars without contracts always play this card. Trying to stir up interest overseas and hurry the NHL franchise into signing a contract, just in case they lose the player for nothing. It’s a cheap tactic but it happens.
