The Golden Knights have squandered a 3 -1
After Game 6, DeBoer was asked whether the Sharks would benefit from a less verbally combative series, and he called out Gallant for taking the opposing players from the bench. . Specifically, after Vegas's Jonathan Marchessault slashed San Jose's Logan Couture in Sunday's game, Gallant yelled from his bench on Couture not getting called for embellishment. Couture briefly left the ice but came back to show the officials the damage to his mouth. Here's what DeBoer said about Gallant's tone in general, via the San Jose Mercury News :
“I don't know if it works in our favor. I mean, there's still chatting. Their coach is chattering. He's probably doing the most chattering. He's talking to our players constantly during the game, which I've seen before.
"That's probably where most of the chatter's coming from now. The players are playing. ”
Gallant, who was asked about the beef this afternoon, started his answer by saying,“ I really want to talk about that, ”before talking about it plenty. The coach called DeBoer "that clown," and said he was actually "at the referee" about the lack of an embellishment call, not Couture. (It wasn't embellishment, though.) Gallant said that the other time was chirping at an opposing player, it was a response to San Jose's Evander Kane.
 It's a damn shame that the guy named Gallant, who's supposedly so good at talking trash, didn't even call his counterpart “Goofus.”
