Winnipeg Jets beat Montreal Canadiens 2-1

According to the Associated Press,

 The Winnipeg Jets skated off with a win. The Montreal Canadiens left the ice with complaints.

There was a bit of a serious altercation towards the end of the game, which may have had an effect on the outcome of the contest between Winnipeg and Montreal.

More from AP:

In the final minute, Montreal’s Brendan Gallagher was roughed up by three Jets, preventing him from getting out of the offensive zone.

With their net empty, and an extra skater on the ice, Gallagher was kept on the wrong side of the blue line for roughly 20 seconds, so the rest of the Canadiens couldn’t enter the Winnipeg zone.

Gallagher was cross-checked into the net by Zach Bogosian, punched and elbowed in the head by Montoya in the crease, and then elbowed again by defenseman Jacob Trouba.

However, no infractions were called.

While there may have been serious controversies throughout the game, the result is a win for the Winnipeg Jets and a loss for the Montreal Canadiens.
