Brendan Gallagher Gets Called Out By Tim Stutzle in Post-Game Interview

Published January 19, 2024 at 2:16 PM

Since joining the NHL, German forward Tim Stutzle has already made several enemies across the league, known for "faking" to draw penalties on opposing players.

Moreover, a significant rivalry seems to have developed between the Ottawa Senators forward and Brendan Gallagher, almost leading to a fight in last night's game.

Indeed, the diminutive Canadiens attacker was visibly furious at the end of the game, even going as far as throwing his gloves to engage in a fight with the third overall pick in 2020. To the great dismay of Montreal fans, Tim Stutzle refused Gally's invitation, immediately fleeing the scene.

Here is the sequence in question:

Following the Senators' victory, number 18 commented on the sequence, mentioning he had no reason to fight at that point in the match. He also admitted that Gallagher kept shouting at him that he was scared to fight, an accusation that seems founded given Stutzle's reaction to number 11's invitation.

« I don't know what his problem is, but he's always after me.

But honestly, I don't care. We were winning 5 to 1 and I had no reason to fight with him. He told me I was afraid of him, but that's not true. » - Tim Stutzle

One thing is for sure, Brendan Gallagher has succeeded in making his mark in the NHL by constantly annoying opposing players, and we are very happy to see that he does not stray from his identity.
