Problem is, the hit should never have happened, they should have called the Kings for boarding on the Gionta hit seconds before.
No Bernier penalty, no 5 minute major power play, Devils on a power play, 0-0 score.
Not sour grapes, just feeling like it never should have happened.
Maybe the Kings win anyway, they were flying around, but Broduer was playing great up until that point.
The Bernier hit was clearly a major penalty and the Devils shat the bed during those 5 minutes.
Just never should have happened--changed the entire game and the Cup was basically awarded right there.
Yeah, the Kings should have been called on the minor before then. But then you're turning this into a Star Trek episode with the space-time continuum and what would or wouldn't have happened afterwards.
The Devils were awful on the penalty kill all night so we have no idea what wouldve transpired afterward when they got another penalty.
As to the penalty on Bernier, I thought it was a minor, that's why I say it was a bad call. The blood was the difference.
