On Instagram 2015 was a year filled with food pics, smiles for miles and above all else, SELFIES... well for most people that is. Ether way regardless of what you posted on your personal account you all kind of want to know what did good and what was your most well received photos, well this website shows you your best 9 Instagram pictures of 2015.
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
While the photo of Kucherov seems harmless, showing him posing with the Stanley Cup in front of a pool and boat, and we don't know the exact intention behind the tweet, the caption added fuel to the fire.
"Nikita is sending kind regards to Montréal Canadiens fans! #WeAreGoldStar!" it read.
In the comments section, multiple people criticized the lack of class being displayed while others pointed out that the streets of Tampa looked deserted after last night's victory.
"The Stanley Cup is obviously not big enough to fill your ego! Happy for your win - but I guess you just defined what it means to be a classless, sore winner," tweeted @belangerlisa.
At the time this article was published, Kucherov had not given any further explanation for the photo posted by his agent — but he had retweeted it.
In what could only be described as a fated win — with the game happening on home ice on Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, during 2021's last strawberry moon — thousands of Montrealers who crowded L'Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal in the celebration were scattered by Montreal police.
