The Florida Panthers head coach Paul Maurice has commented on the picture of Radko Gudas screaming at Joseph Woll.

Gudas Screams At Woll



Last season during the playoffs, we got an iconic moment where Panthers defenseman Radko Gudas screamed in the face of Leafs goaltender Joseph Woll following the series-winning goal.

Here's the broadcast of that goal. I sincerely doubt anyone who claims they noticed live that Gudas was specifically yelling at Woll. At worst it looks like he's just celebrating the goal, if you're even focused on him at all. Think most are just backfilling their own memories.

Tonight, the Leafs face off for the first time since this incident and Panthers head coach Paul Maurice has commented on it.

Maurice Comments On The Scream



Paul Maurice has now shared his thoughts on the scream from Gudas and it hits the nail on the head.


"We thought it was kinda funny. He's just such an emotional guy. It was his barbaric yelp. People from Toronto didn't appreciate it the same way we did." — Paul Maurice, to reporters, on this infamous Radko Gudas photo»

While the Toronto faithful were not too happy with it, the rest of the NHL got a solid laugh from it. However, both teams left the playoffs disappointed as the Panthers were knocked out in the cup finals.

Since this scream, Gudas has gone on to sign a contract with the Anaheim Ducks and it seems like he will be avoiding the drama as much as possible.
