Erik Cole was in high spirits after scoring his 27th goal of the season in the first period of Wednesday’s game against Ottawa and he decided to let the referee know it.
Montreal goaltender Carey Price admitted, “That was hilarious. But I wasn’t laughing for too long because they scored right after.”
Price and the Canadiens ended up getting the last laugh as they went onto win 3-2 in a shootout.
