Brady Tkachuk: “party animal” and fan of the Flames (the time of a spring)

We had two very different games last night in the NHL.

Firstthe Hurricanes managed to reverse a one-goal deficit late in the third, before winning in extra time in front of their fans (2 to 1). Alexis Lafrenière’s excellent performance – yet another! – it will not have been enough for the Rangers (a great assist and a post). Panarin, Zibanejad, Strome, Fox, Trouba, Kreider, Kakko… they were all eliminated from the scoreboard last night. Among the Hurricanes, we will especially remember Sebastian Aho’s beautiful goal at the end of the thirdfollowed by Ian Cole’s first goal in extra time… from a pass from Jesperi Kotkaniemi. It was a first point in the playoffs for KK.

In Calgary, this first round of the Battle of Alberta gave us the right to a highly offensive game: 9 to 6 the final score. What a show! Promise for the future (unless your name is Claude Julien and you like games that end with the score 1-0).

Mike Smith allowed two goals in less than a minute and was sent off after six minutes. THE problem in Edmonton, he is still in goal. Mikko Koskinen didn’t go up like a wall when he came to relieve Smith. Note that Jacob Markstrom was only slightly better. Barely!

Among the Oilers we will remember the four points from Connor McDavid (leading scorer in the NHL), as well as the three points from Leon Draisaitl. What a duo!

We’ll also remember Milan Lucic’s control of McDavid late in the match…and the fair that followed. Will we see a fight between Lucic and Kane or between Lucic and Kassian before the end of the series?

Among the Flames, it was mainly Matthew Tkachuk’s three goals (and family) that caught our attention. Let’s just say that going from Jake Oeetinger to Mike Smith makes a few things easier (at least on some nights).

Father Keith Tkachuk refused to throw away his white cap to highlight the hat trick of his son Matthew.

But it is especially the presence of Brady Tkachuk, the captain of the Senators, but also brother of Matthew, who caught the attention of netizens. This is the second time this spring that he has been talked about at a Flames game. He had attended a Stars vs. Flames with a vest with the image of his brother on the back.

Yesterday we saw him in a red sweater. his brother’s, paste in the hands of Flames fans, celebrating homegrown goals, drinking outbreak of light and pose for the Flames cameras.

Some, however, didn’t like seeing him celebrate the Flames’ goals.. What would it be like if Nick Suzuki were to celebrate his brother Ryan’s goals in Raleigh, outbreak of light by hand? I to think That wouldn’t bother me, but I’m pretty sure my “take” wouldn’t be unanimous.

Hopefully, Tkachuk’s bon vivant won’t get them into as much trouble as Subban’s bon vivant, for example.

Brady will watch Game #2 tomorrow, before heading home (in Ontario or somewhere in the United States). To think that he could have returned to Montreal if we had preferred him to Jesperi Kotkaniemi…

Note that Matthew Tkachuk was also talked about for poking fun at Evander Kane and his recent bankruptcy during last night’s game.


– Experience made the difference in the Rocket.

– Was it for fun or?

– Yanni Gourde wants to see the Kraken participate in the playoffs next year.

– Happy birthday George! At 41, I hope you no longer have plans to come back…

– James Pantemis was suspended by CF Montreal for having badly digested the fact of never playing. What is the next step?

– Yesterday’s loss in Nashville left CF Montreal with the top spot in the East standings.
