“Good night Tampa!” | The Journal of Montreal

It’s been an entertaining weekend. And winning, which can’t hurt. The Canadian went to beat the mighty Lightning in Tampa. The two-time Stanley Cup champions wore their third jersey for the occasion. A confirmed ugliness. But that is not the point.

At the game, sensation Cole Caufield wore the TVA Sports microphone. A formidable idea which made it possible to confirm in the heat of the action what emerges from the young sniper when our ears are not complicit. Caufield has a formidable magnetism. His constant good humor, his catchy smile. He is a contagious teenager. It distributes the pleasure on and behind the bench. We saw and heard him in full outpouring of joy with his coach and mentor Martin Saint-Louis. It was true, it was intoxicating.

And what about the finale, a “Good Night Tampa!” testifying to the intoxication of victory. The roar of the lion cub on the way to mutation, happy and trying to leap into its mother’s paws.

Cole Caufield perfectly embodies the face that Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes want to give to the Canadian. Youth, talent, desire to win. Always happy and with a smile. Caufield is a merchant of happiness. Not everyone will be on this team. But its contagion will be neuralgic to maintain the desired level of mood in the locker room.

Nick Suzuki is more reserved, more interior. It’s perfect. Caufield will be useful to him to complete his scholarly maneuvers and keep the course of positivism. Caufield will be a slide preventer to the dark side of the force. This darkness awaits all top athletes along their journey. She is watching Caufield too, but we feel that he will have no trouble getting rid of her.

3 points that kick off the CF MTL season?

CF Montreal offered the victory to its new president, Gabriel Gervais, on Saturday. A first win in this MLS 2022 championship and a first triumph in Cincinnati. An offensive backfire of 4-3 acquired without Romell Quioto and Mason Toye, in charge of production in attack.

There are four Canadian national team players in this squad. Four Canadian products jubilant to leave for Qatar next November to participate in the biggest sporting event on the planet, the Soccer World Cup. Their presence will be precious for Wilfried Nancy and Olivier Renard. That of Gabriel Gervais too. Will the wind finally be gentle and good in Saputo Park? I really hope so.

Quebec at the top of professional wrestling!

A word about Kevin Owens, born Kevin Steen, in Marieville on the South Shore of Montreal. What KO accomplished in Dallas in the Wrestlemania Finals on Saturday night is extraordinary. His dedication to providing the diminished and aging Stone Cold Steve Austin with an outstanding farewell match deserves mention. Wrestling is an extreme theater. Kevin Owens imposed a frantic and dedicated tango in a brilliant ring exit for the legendary Austin. It was genius. Sunday it was the turn of Montrealer Sami Zain to give the best show of the evening. Don’t doubt it, there is finally a succession at Bravo, Brito and Rougeau…
