If a Toronto team plays a Montreal team in the playoffs, the winner of that series wins the Stanley Cup.
Cassidy was whining about the officiating and the seeming disparity between calls agains the 2 teams. This is his quote after game 5, where the Islanders had 4 power plays and the Bruins 2. The Isles scored 3 times, the Bruins once in a 5-4 Islanders win.Can someone please explain what is going on with the Saints?
“I think they sell a narrative over there that it’s more like the New York Saints and not the New York Islanders,” said Cassidy. “They play hard. They play the right way. The exact calls that are getting called on us do not get called on them.”
