    Devils deserve to lose, I never blame the refs for any outcome. But that being said, it's absolutely infuriating that they leave such a mark on a clinching game. Awful job by them.

    Lol, Devs got outplayed once... And they won that game. They proved they belonged and I'm happy. Marty was out****ingstanding... Let's focus on the miracle of signing Parise, be happy we have a top tier rook in Henrique and go from there...

    I'm proud of the Devils. Period.

    I don't get the hatred for the refs. That was a nasty hit by Bernier and he deserved 5 minutes. Could they have called Stoll for a boarding call too? Sure, but they happened to miss it. It's impossible to make every call. And honestly, that wasn't THAT bad of a hit on Gionta. For a Stanley Cup game, I could argue that it probably didn't even deserve a penalty. It was ****ty timing that Bernier had such a terrible hit just moments later... but it is what it is.

    Need I remind Devils fans the high stick to Stepan's face by Stephen Gionta, who you know ended up scoring the first goal of Game 5 against the Rangers seconds later as a direct result of the guy immediately defending him holding his head in his hands. And who knows what would have transpired, but that goal really really deflated the Rangers as the Devils went on to score 2 more quick goals moments later.

    The bottom line is that refs miss calls. It doesn't excuse any play or penalty taken afterwards. Obviously nobody wants to be in a 5 minute penalty kill sitaution, but it's hardly a death knell. They were obviously at a disadvantage, but they still gave up 3 goals.

    Good foresight...

    Was it a bad call? Yeah. I think the blood caused the over reaction by the ref.

    But the Greatest Goalie of All Time still gave up 3 goals in 5 minutes. That was godawful penalty killing by the Devils.

    Cry about the refs all you want, but Marty was bad last night and there is no way escaping that. He gave up 5 goals in an elimination game.

    Yeah, he was a **** talker last series (the rangers only won because of bad luck) and he's a pretty blatant homer but it's like the best part of being a fan. Being irrational. I agree it's funny as long as he didn't make personal attacks and AGAW never did.

    Sometimes, I think he's Chico Reech with the homerism comments haha. Chico looked like he wanted to cry last night.

    What your late entrance into here, or the 45 year wait? Your team might take you up on that.

    Agreed, no problem with AGAW.

    I just think it's funny that every penalty against the Devils is BS, but any other fan who complains about a penalty is a crybaby.

    You'd think the Devils would never lose a game if it weren't for terrible luck and conspiring refs.

    Not the issue. It WASN'T a bad call. It was actually the correct call, Bernier should have gotten the major and been chucked. And it was an awful penalty kill and Brodeur did not look good at all during it.

    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.

    If you make a stupid and reckless play (Bernier!) then be prepared to suffer the consequences. All the more so in a game in which your margin for error is zero. There is nothing unreasonable about the fate of the Devils. Even with a 5 minute major you still have to execute. The Kings did, the Devils did not. All hail the Kings, a truly worthy Stanley Cup winner.
