Gallagher Dominates

While the NHL and the Bruins hosted the Winter Classic, it’s not without concern from some of the strange individuals.

Those are the ones that think it’s perfectly fine for them to bring in concealed weapons to the event, trying to disrupt the lives of normal hockey fans.

Some of the weapons seized or confiscated from one individual, who is actually an employee and while being in the confines of the (employee) parking lot at Gillette Stadium are a Sword and a Cleaver to name only two.

Ironically the individual faces multiple charges, while the FDP investigation is on-going.

With 67,246 attending the game it was hoped that the home team (Boston) would pull off a win over the struggling Canadians in this classic.

Quite possibly they might have, if it wasn’t for South Delta’s Brendan Gallagher playing the role of “Bruin Destroyer” managing to grab one goal and one helper.

For whatever reason, Gallagher excels in this type of environment and we have seen it happen in the past when he was with the Vancouver Giant.

Gallagher returned to the line-up after a stint out when he broke to fingers while Montreal earned the largest margin of victory in Winter Classic history, playing in what some describe as ideal conditions.

With the reunited top line did all the damage with Pacioretty and Plekanec each finishing with two helpers.

Rask played well through 20 minutes, but not well enough to give the Bruins the victory as Montreal outshot the Bruins 14-3 after 20 minutes.

The loss see’s Rask drop to 1-15-3 in his career against the Habs, so it’s apparent they have his number.

Montreal played local boy Mike Condon and coming from the area he played excellent stopping 25 shots in the second and third periods alone.

He has allowed only four goals on the 67 he has faced in two starts since Montreal traded for Ben Scrivens.

Gallagher played nine minutes in the first half and was taken down heavily by solid D-Man Zdeno Chara in the first period, narrowly missing a rebound that simply wasn’t there.

Interesting that Bruin’s nemesis, Brad Marchand was playing due to a (surprise) suspension

His tenacity, drive and ability to motivate the rest of the team is something that other clubs would love to have, but it’s all about drafting.

Have you ever wondered why the Canucks fails to draft local talent letting them pass through their gates to another team?

The concept is interesting as several have asked the same question dating back years to other draft’s when we (Canucks) have lost out on players like a Gallagher?

One can’t dwell on the past and while the Canucks continue to build under the leadership of Trevor Linden and Jim Benning all they can ask is for the fan’s to be patient and look ahead for bigger and better things.

Does this mean we, er-they are building toward them winning the first ever Stanley Cup in the franchise of the team. Let’s hope so!!

Only time will tell!!
