Team Canada captain Ryan Getzlaf says Sunday morning’s “incident” at a Helsinki bar is being completely overblown.
“Where that story came from, I don’t know,” Getzlaf said today, as per CP. “It was way out of proportion. Way, way overblown. It was nothing like what was reported.”
So what exactly happened that a Finnish media outlet felt was worthy of reporting?
“Somebody tried to start an argument at the door. I said ‘No! No! No!“’ he explained. “It wasn’t much more than that. There were never any punches thrown. Nothing, no incident.”
—- No physical altercation.
—- No curfew.
—- No game Sunday.
—- No way you can compare this to Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn partying the morning of a playoff game.
Canada smoked France, 7-2, today.
