Truth be told, the Montreal Canadiens would not have defeated the Philadelphia Flyers in this series even if George ‘The Violent Gentleman’ Parros weren’t terrible at his job. Even if Parros had given a non-joke suspension to Flyers defenseman Matt Niskanen, Brendan Gallagher still would have been out of the Canadiens’ lineup and that’s a trade the Flyers would take seven days a week. So you can’t really use that excuse. And as much as the Canadiens made people forget how bad they were in the regular season, the reality is they came into the NHL’s COVID Invitational as its worst team.
