Who is the Canadiens’ Brendan Gallagher cheering for in the Stanley Cup final?
“I don’t want to see Boston win,” Gallagher told Elliott Pap of Postmedia News.
Gallagher, who works out with the Bruins’ Milan Lucic during the offseason, added that the reason he’d rather see the Chicago Blackhawks win the Cup has to do with the bitter Boston-Montreal rivalry.
“I mean, I’m happy for Lootch and I’m glad he’s doing well,” Gallagher said. “But I just don’t want to see Boston win.”
Gallagher said he wishes Lucic all the best in everything except winning another Cup.
Gallagher must have been happy after Game 1 of the Cup final, which ended early Thursday morning with the Blackhawks’ Andrew Shaw scoring on a double deflection at 12:08 of the third overtime period for a 4-3 win over the Bruins.
Game 2 of the Cup final is Saturday night in Chicago (8 p.m., CBC, RDS).
