Toronto’s Morgan Rielly blacked out in the hockey league NHL in the last seconds of the game.
In the NHL, a rare situation was seen in the night’s NHL round, when Toronto’s star player Morgan Rielly did not melt Ridly Greig’s solution in the final moments of the game.
The Ottawa Senators’ Greig skated through and shot the puck into the empty net. Rielly was shocked by the situation and immediately hit the opponent in the face with a cross.
Rielly received a five-minute penalty and a match penalty for his cross stick. The situation will probably also be reviewed in the NHL’s disciplinary process.
You can see the situation in more detail in the following video.
Rielly’s solution was the biggest talking point after the match. Senators head coach Jasques Martin did not consider the act to be a suitable solution.
– It’s not part of hockey. It’s frustration or something, but that’s not part of this game. (Greig) shot the puck into the goal. “It shouldn’t matter if he pushes it or shoots it,” Martin said.
– His goal was pretty funny, Senators Shane Pinto said with a laugh.
Head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs Sheldon Keefe was on different lines from Rielly’s cross stick.
– I think it was the right thing to do, Keefe said.
– I think he reacts to the game. Their player has the right to do what he wants at that moment and our players have the right to react, he continued.
Toronto goaltender Martin Jones commenting on Lämär from his team’s point of view as well.
“It was stupid what their players did in the final moments,” Jones said.
The 29-year-old Rielly is one of Toronto’s star players. The 29-year-old defender has scored 7+36=43 points this season. A possible suspension would be his first during his 11-year NHL career.
