The Vegas Golden Knights and the San Jose Sharks are set to face off in a Game 7 on Tuesday night, with the winner moving on to the second round to face the Colorado Avalanche.
In the previous six games of the series, head coach of the Golden Knights Gerard Gallant, was accused of chirping at Sharks players during games by San Jose head coach Peter de Boer.
Sharks coach de Boer criticized Gallant for his chirping, and Gallant responded to his critic, along with denying the claims and adding that in those instances he was yelling at the refs, not the opposing players.

There is obviously no love loss between these two teams, with multiple social media feuds, mainly between Ryan Reaves and Evander Kane. Now that the coaches are getting involved, it should set up the stage for a great Game 7.
Gallant called de Boer a "clown" following his criticism of the Vegas head coach. The continuous battle should not only make a great game on Tuesday night, but may also fire up both teams, knowing that their head coaches are getting involved in the off-ice semantics.
