coach Jared Bednar wasn’t happy about a controversial penalty call
Colorado coach Jared Bednar wasn't happy about a controversial penalty call in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Friday that helped determine the Avalanche's fate in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay.
The Avalanches have already overcome the deficit 1: 0 and leveled the game when Kucherov increased Lightning to 2: 1.
The Lightning were partially won by a misdemeanor against Cale Makar in the second period.
"It's a shame," Devon Toews said of the call. "I don't know if you can say it's unreasonable or not.
"I didn't like the call, just because I didn't think it had a purpose," Bednář said. "I don't think he controlled the guy.
It was as if he was stuck with a cane. It is difficult. Their sole purpose is to play on the power of it.
Makar tried to circumvent the penalty questions after completion by claiming that he had never seen a replay.
"I'm not here to talk about refrigerators," Makar said. "We have to deal with it, it's a playoffs, there are conflicting matches with different people.
