Gallagher could have seriously injured Montembeault and/or Romanov

As previously mentioned, there was an altercation (again) between Alexander Romanov and Brendan Gallagher, two players who play with a lot of emotion and character.

There is a lot of intensity in physical sports like hockey, so skirmishes during practice are not uncommon. Many players approach practices as if they were playing a game, which is fine.

However, when you push a 209-pound defenseman and he falls directly on the goalie's legs, it may be a bit over the top, if not stupid. Luckily, Samuel Montembeault was not injured on this sequence.

By the way, don't take this clip to mean that "Gally" can't wear the "C" since Shea Weber practices that way too. Without being a real captain, Gallagher remains an excellent leader by example on NHL rinks.

In short, who doesn't like this kind of riff raff?
