Scuderi’s fine after Bernier’s devastating hit

Jun 11, 2012, 10:01 PM EDT

Rob Scuderi went down hard after New Jersey’s Steve Bernier delivered a big hit from behind. There was blood on the ice when Scuderi finally got up and Bernier received a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct. That blow directly led to three power-play goals for the Los Angeles Kings.

Scuderi was back for the start of the second period.

Scuderi previously won the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins back in 2009. He only has one point in the postseason, but Scuderi has been a huge part of the Kings’ defensive game. He ranks third on the team in playing time per game and he’s one of their go to guys when they’re shorthanded.

    How nice. He’ll be back on the ice to skate around with the Cup*. Will it be passed off to him before or after the refs get to skate around with it?

      If that had been Brown hammering (pick any Devil defenseman) into the glass you’d be singing an entirely different tune. How typical of the loser to claim it wasn’t his team that lost, it was the refs fault for not turning a blind eye to an obvious foul. Apparently you turned the TV off after Bernier’s stupid play and missed the Devils’ PK give up three goals in five minutes. Oh, wait, that was the ref grabbing a stick and getting a hat trick on Brodeur, right? Hahahahahaha!!!

    Rob was always fine. After the hit did you notice that he looked the see if their was a call then he turtled. This is the new wave of Hollywooding.

    How do those sour grapes taste?

    I think he was faking the blood too, he must have been right?

    If Clarkson boards Brown in game 5, same refs mind you, how was stoll not a board on gionta, which when scuderi touches the puck, the devils get a 2 minute PP and bernier never arrives for that hit. Its 1-1 with the kings being able to play like its 4-1 if the refs are anywhere near consistent. Turning point period. from a devils pp to a kings 5 minute pp. other than that, the other two majors called against the devils, and the 8 pp opps for la to the devils 1 ( which was a makeup call on penner who didnt do anything late in the 2nd so NBC didn’t have to show the graphic 8-0 pp pops) and the pick on volchenkov by racicot who stays in the game but a replace ref Murray replaces hammel, not racicot to start the 3rd. Other than that, they’ve been spot on.

    Pathetic, he blatantly looked at the refs to make sure there was a call
