Even though players have had to drop out of the World Cup of Hockey, there are still some members of the Philadelphia Flyers going. Two of them are Claude Giroux and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, with Giroux representing Canada, and Bellemare, a Frenchman, being a part of the Frankenteam known as Team Europe.
Team Canada plays Team Europe at 8 p.m. on Sept. 21. And so...
Full disclosure, my French is not super great, but it would seem Bellemare is telling Giroux that on Sept. 21, he’s going to "eat one".
If it’s not clear enough to us Anglophones, though, I think that "#Bangbang" hashtag makes it understandable enough. Bellemare is coming for Giroux. (In a friendly-but-still-competitive way, I would think, that results in fun hockey for all and zero injuries to speak of. That’s the ideal, here.)
Everyone keep your heads up!
