In their latest showdown, tensions ran high between the Vancouver Canucks and Detroit Red Wings, reigniting controversy from their previous encounter. The situation involves a dispute over a goal celebration, as the Canucks felt offended by Jake Walman's "griddy" dance for the Red Wings in their previous match.


Zadorov Gets His Revenge And Mocks Walman's Griddy Dance



Seeking payback, Canucks defenseman Nikita Zadorov took matters into his own hands during their recent clash. With Vancouver in command with a 4-1 lead, Zadorov and Walman engaged in a heated exchange, culminating in Zadorov mocking Walman with his own version of the celebratory "griddy" dance.




Such moments not only add fuel to the rivalry but also stir conversation, injecting an extra layer of excitement into the game. Goal celebrations have been under scrutiny in the NHL lately, particularly following incidents like this one and Ottawa Senators Ridly Greig's controversial puck slap into an empty net against the Toronto Maple Leafs.


The aftermath of these events, such as Morgan Rielly's subsequent suspension for his reaction, underscores the ongoing debate surrounding on-ice conduct and its repercussions.
