The Montreal Canadiens will drop the puck at 7PM EST with the Philadelphia Flyers tonight and try and stay alive as the Flyers lead the series 3-2.
With the series getting physical and a recent suspension, Canadiens' general manager Marc Bergevin decided to speak to the media this morning.
Bergevin called out Flyers' head coach Alain Vigneault for his recent comments saying Brendan Gallagher's injury was basically Gallagher's fault because he's too short.
The Habs' GM added that Gallagher will have to eat his meals through a straw for awhile and that he wouldn't wish that on anybody, especially the opposing Flyers' players.
Bergevin also said that while he accepted and respected the NHL's decision regarding the one game suspension, he implied it wasn't enough.
As for Gallagher, Bergevin revealed that the Habs' forward will have surgery outside the bubble either today or tomorrow and will be out awhile.
What do you think of Bergevin's comments before Game 6?
