In the words of Sean Connery, “Losers always whine about their best, winners go home to fuck the prom queen’.

Nikita Kucherov not holding back in his post-game. Legendary press conference. pic.twitter.com/6hA9KvpgPE

“The fans in Montreal? Come on. They acted like they won the cup after the last game. Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Their final was the last series.”
COME ON!!!!! That’s it. Give me more disrespect in these post-game pressers instead of the standard boilerplate ‘The other guys deserve respect’ BS.
Kucherov isn’t wrong either. The Canadians deserve credit for their series win over Vegas, but that’s about it. Everything broke the Habs way this year. From their Tavares/Muzzin-less 3-1 comeback drubbing of the Leafs to their Sheifele-less win over the Jets, the hockey gods cleared the way for Montreal’s run.
Expect dejected Canadiens fans to take Kucherov’s comments with a hint of murderous rage, btw. I was on the receiving end of it last night after suggesting luck only goes so far.
Vasilevsky clinched every series with a shutout.
Suck on that tonight, Habs fans.
Luckiest run in NHL history.

They seemed to take it well, so imagine how agro they’ll be with Kucherov backing up the common-sense belief that the Habs were SOOOO LUCKY it hurts.
Remember, sports fans, the truth is universal and the Habs Cinderella run, as lovely as it was for you, is still subject to the laws of nature and physics, so don’t act like you should have won it all. Be happy that your team played meaningful hockey and feel free to cite the Leafs’ perennial failures if it makes you feel better. Just don’t pretend you’re sadly shocked because you never should have been there, to begin with.
