Hard to add much that the others haven't already said. If that wasn't Gally's worst game of the year, I'd be surprised.
Spott decided to match the Marcantuoni-Thomson-Rieder line against Galchenyuk, with Thomson appearing to draw the main assignment of getting the body on him early. A few knocks and Gally seemed to go into a more peripheral game and didn't get time to make solid plays.
Couple that with the fact that Boucher and Sarault were positively atrocious and you get what you got.
I think my biggest issue was with Sarnia's effort and body language. If Beaulieu thinks the effort was there he should be slapped. That third period was disgusting. Players going half speed, lolly-gagging on shift changes, slumped shoulders after whistles, etc. Gally even gave several signs he was mailing it in after a certain point.
