Teuvo Teravainen dreaded talking to the media but knew he would have to after scoring a goal in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Being in the Stanley Cup Finals must be thrilling for a young player, right? Well, 20-year-old Finnish forward Teuvo Teravainen had different thoughts after scoring the Chicago Blackhawks' first goal in this year's series.
In the opening game on Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Lightning took an early lead and went deep into the third period still up 1–0. But a wrist shot from Teravainen tied things back up with just over six minutes remaining.
The Hawks took the lead shortly thereafter and held on for a come-from-behind win in Tampa Bay to start the series. Not that Teravainen could completely enjoy the moment.
Even the joys of victory are drowned out by the agony of talking on camera.
