It appears at least one member of the St. Louis Blues is on edge ahead of Game 7.
That'd be general manager Doug Armstrong, who was at TD Garden on Tuesday for the Blues' practice as they prepare for the Boston Bruins in a winner-take-all Stanley Cup Final showdown.
Per reporters at the Garden, Armstrong was irritated that the Garden ice crew (otherwise known as the "bull gang") didn't have the rink ready to go for St. Louis' practice.
But according to TSN's Darren Dreger, at one least bull gang member didn't take Armstrong's tongue-lashing lying down.
Blues GM, Doug Armstrong just colourfully instructed the ice crew at TD Garden to get to work. Armstrong was a bit annoyed with possibility of the Blues practice being delayed. Crew member “who pissed in your Cheerios this morning”? Game 7.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) June 11, 2019
Welcome to Boston, Doug.
Luckily for all parties involved, it appears tensions were diffused.
Apparently Armstrong circled back to apologize. Game 7 harmony has been restored. https://t.co/gB1Xd8BHgd— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) June 11, 2019
Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk's father actually is a member of the Garden ice crew, but no word on whether he was the one to snap back at Armstrong.
The TD Garden ice occasionally has been an issue during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, as the warm Boston weather has resulted in soft ice and strange bounces.
Wednesday's forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-70s, so Armstrong can rest assured that the bull gang will be hard at work leading up to Game 7.
