What a rough couple of days for Brendan Gallagher. Upon returning home from the Canadiens Stanley Cup Final loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, Gallagher’s house was broken into, he announced on TikTok.
“When your Stanley Cup dreams are crushed and you come home to find out you’ve been robbed, but it’s okay, because Pitbull’s been there and done that.”Brendan Gallagher
Gallagher announced that he was robbed in a “smile through the pain” mindset.
This is about lyrics from Pitbull and Ne-Yo’s song “Time of Our Lives,” which was the audio in the background of Gallagher’s TikTok video. The Canadiens winger did not reveal any more information about the incident. Montreal Police have yet to comment on the situation, either.
Fresh off of an incredible Playoff run
The Montreal Canadiens were the talk of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. After upsetting opponent after opponent, Montreal had a chance to win a Canadian team’s first Stanley Cup since 1993. Instead, they had to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning raise the cup in front of a sold-out Amalie Arena.
The Canadiens started their improbable Playoff run with an incredible 3-1 comeback against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Phillip Danault and the Canadiens stifling defense managed to keep Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews to one goal in this series.
Next, Montreal had to face another Canadian team. This time, it was the Winnipeg Jets. Winnipeg was fresh off of a sweep of the Edmonton Oilers. It was the Jets being swept in this series, though.
Going into the Conference Finals, not many people were giving Montreal a chance against Vegas. Montreal didn’t care, though — they seemed to like the underdog role. Montreal eliminated Vegas in six games. Montreal’s incredible run came to a halting stop in the Stanley Cup Final, though. Tampa Bay won the Cup in five games.
