No shame in losing to the top team in the West.
After the game, Tomas Plekanec was overheard talking to Pierre Gauthier:
"I value my neck a lot more than three [million] bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. Ten [million] dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."
No word yet on whether Gauthier has reached a deal with Plekanec or his agent.
