Nick Suzuki made a noteworthy gesture that is causing a lot of talk

The Canadiens had a tough game on Sunday against the St. Louis Blues. Not only did the score tilt heavily in favor of the visitors, but two defensemen left the game and could be injured for a considerable time.

While the score was 2-0 for the visitors, Samuel Blais made contact with Jordan Harris, who was solidly shaken and left the game. Although it was a bizarre play, one can understand the players believing it was a malicious hit, as they hadn't had the chance to see all the replays.

Blais received a 5-minute penalty and was ejected from the game. Nick Suzuki took advantage of the power play to score a goal, after which he threw a very intense look towards the Blues' bench.

"I don't know if it's a coincidence, but Nick Suzuki threw a piercing look towards the corridor leading to the Blues' locker room just after celebrating his goal.

I like to think it's not a coincidence.


Indeed, I noticed it too. It seemed like he was venting his frustration in that way, and it was well-timed as the score was then 2-1.

Unfortunately, the lack of depth in the team proved to be its downfall, and the Blues took full advantage. One could also question Martin St-Louis' decision to sit Xhekaj, especially when the Blues are known for their physical play.
