Lightning pummel Canadiens in Game 1 of Stanley Cup Final

Published

on

TAMPA, Fla. — After carrying the Montreal Canadiens to the Stanley Cup Final with sublime goaltending, Carey Price stopped just about everything he saw in Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The defending champions lead the series because they made sure Price didn’t see very much and his teammates saw plenty of the rough stuff, shoved and banged into the boards and ice. Brendan Gallagher was left bloody, and the Canadiens were left beaten.

The Lightning created traffic in front of Price, scored two deflection goals and outmuscled the smaller Canadiens in a 5-1 rout Monday night that showed what it takes to crack Montreal’s defensive wall. Tampa Bay flipped the script and did much of what the Canadiens’ previous opponents couldn’t, creating a potential blueprint to win a second consecutive championship.

“We have a game plan, and we have a recipe,” Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said. “And if we go out there, we believe that if we do the right things that we’re going to get rewarded for it and we have so far to get to this point and I thought we did that tonight.”

The Lightning put on a clinical performance similar to what the Vegas Golden Knights did in their series opener last round against the Canadiens — and they will need more of the same.

It was clear from the drop of the puck that coach Jon Cooper’s team wanted to deliver body blows early and often.

Mikhail Sergachev sent 5-foot-9, 183-pound Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher to the ice early. When Gallagher got into it with much larger Victor Hedman, Blake Coleman shoved him into the net, dislodging the net and his helmet.

In the third period, Gallagher took a shot up high from Coleman and was taken down by Sergachev. He got up with his forehead dripping with blood and left the ice.

The rough stuff between and after the whistles set an early tone for the series, and the plan of attack to take Price’s eyes away worked like a charm. When his teammates made defensive mistakes like leaving Steven Stamkos wide open or letting Tyler Johnson get in on net all alone, Price was there to flash a big glove or pad save.

But he couldn’t stop what he couldn’t see.

Price shuffled in the crease all night trying to get in better position to see around and through big Lightning forwards and his own defenders, which was something he didn’t have to do as much in earlier rounds of the plaoffs. The first three goals against him were Erik Cernak’s stick deflection, Blake Coleman’s shot that banked in off Yanni Gourde’s left skate and Ben Chiarot putting the puck in his own net.

Price allowed five goals for the first time this postseason.

“That’s the key I think: going on the inside and driving the net, taking his eyes away,” Gourde said. “That’s the key.”

The Lightning did a good job studying what the Canadiens did in previous rounds — rope-a-doping, relying on Price to make saves and turning simple mistakes into big goals. Learning from a turnover-prone loss to the New York Islanders that made them play a Game 7 in the semifinals, they gave Montreal little to work with to turn the tables.

When the Canadiens did get good looks, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy turned aside captain Shea Weber off the rush and flashed his glove to rob forward Josh Anderson.

“We just wanted to make sure we were on top of them all over the ice,” Cooper said. “We felt that if we were on top of them, we could snuff some of those out and fortunately we did and a couple times they got some breaks and our goalie had to make some big-time saves to keep the score what it was.”

The only blemish against Vasilevskiy and the Lightning was a double deflection pinball goal.

Even that didn’t derail the Lightning from playing the kind of physical game they need to in this series. It’s early, but the physical toll already started to add up for the Canadiens.

“They’re a big physical team, but it goes both ways when you’re trying to play physical,” Chiarot said. “It wears both sides down, so we’re trying to lay some physicality on them and see how they respond.”

Based on what the Golden Knights found out after winning Game 1 against Montreal and the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs discovered falling behind in their series, the response is coming from the Canadiens. The question is whether the Lightning found a script they can repeat with success as the final unfolds.

“The series is long from over,” Cooper said. “There is definitely room for improvement because I think we have more to give. A team that’s lost Game 1 is definitely going to give us a push and we need to be better than we were.”

Published

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
