Now that the dust has settled on the Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup loss, Habs fans have pointed out that Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy's uniform looked suspiciously inflated in a post-game photo.
And since we all know Habs fans are the calmest and most level-headed hockey fans out there, the question is: did Vasilevskiy really use illegal goalie equipment or is this a nonsense complaint from sad and angry Canadiens fans?
The photo in question, posted on TSN's official Instagram page, shows Carey Price and Vasilevskiy standing face to face with Vasilevskiy looking awfully puffed up compared to Price — from the viewer's perspective, at least.
Following Wednesday's game, several Habs fans took to Twitter with unfounded accusations of illegal equipment.
Did Tampa hoard an extra player inside Vasilevskiy’s equipment? That’s so typical. Cheater franchise. https://t.co/CRSAIigOjO
Multiple fans have posted photos with the 25-year-old actor on the streets of the city, and some have even spotted him in Old Montreal's Tiers Paysage restaurant and Tommy Café. But now we've got the first update from Centineo, himself.
In a Monday Instagram post captioned, "thus far in Montreal," he shared a peek into his activity in the city — which has included attendance at a Montreal Canadiens game alongside reported Graymail producer Doug Liman.
Another pic in the Insta post shows Centineo in a car with Montreal's classic orange construction signs in the background.
He also appears to have snapped a photo of one of those glassy diamond works by artist Le Diamantaire.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi is back in Montreal for the first time since his dramatic summer exodus to Carolina to face the Montreal Canadiens and this kind of feels like seeing the ex you're still in love with.
And while there probably won't be any bad blood between the players, the fans could definitely have a thing or two to say.
According to reports, Kotkaniemi is happy in his new city and new team. Joining another three Finnish compatriots in North Carolina, KK is apparently feeling right at home away from the bright lights of Montreal.
There's no doubt that living in Raleigh is definitely a change from living in hockey-mad Montreal. In a state where NCAA basketball is (apparently) bigger than the NHL, it must be nice for a professional hockey player to be able to live in relative anonymity and focus on just playing the game.
The Habs will host the Hurricanes at the Bell Centre on Thursday night at 7 p.m. EST.
