Bruce Cassidy gets angry (just before confronting Patrick Roy)

Last night, the Vegas Golden Knights were in Newark to take on the Devils, a club that is not living up to expectations this year.

That said, the Knights, once again an NHL powerhouse, escaped the game by a score of 6-5. The club therefore scored five goals, but also conceded too many to its rivals.

And that didn’t make Bruce Cassidy, the Las Vegas coach, happy.

The coach highlighted the offensive effort of some trios, but was not exactly happy to see the defensive effort deployed (or not deployed) by his flock. He believes it was disrespectful to him. game.

The Knights deserved to lose, he said.

Obviously, there’s a difference between a performance like this from a club like Las Vegas, the reigning Stanley Cup champions, and the Canadiens, a club that’s rebuilding.

But in both cases, although Martin St-Louis did not react as strongly after the games last Thursday and Saturday, we can understand the discontent of a coach.

That said, I wonder to what extent Cassidy’s comments were motivated by the fact that the club will face the New York Islanders on Long Island tonight.

And when I say the New York Islanders, I mean the Patrick Roy Islanders.

After all, we know the Islanders’ new coach made an impact Sunday when New York beat Dallas. The effect of Roy’s arrival will certainly mean it won’t be “easy to face the Islanders” tonight.

And if there is anyone who knows it, it is Jonathan Marchessault, who once had Roy as a coach in Quebec.

Remember that tonight Patrick Roy will coach his second game with the Islanders. Meanwhile, the Senators, a club that would have benefited from Roy’s hiring, will be in Montreal. And on Thursday, Patrick Roy will be in Montreal.

Cassidy knows every win is important… and the Canadian must hope not to let Patrick Roy gain even more confidence heading into Thursday night’s showdown at Temple.
