Watch Kings punish Bernier, Devils with 3 PP goals

Jun 11, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

The Los Angeles Kings were given the opportunity of a lifetime when Steve Bernier was ejected from the game and given a five-minute major for boarding Rob Scuderi.

It’s one thing to get a chance like that in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals, but it’s quite another to execute on it. The Kings couldn’t have done much better with three power-play goals.

You can watch all three of them below:

In those five minutes, the Kings got more goals past Brodeur than they did in their Games 4 and 5 losses combined. They effectively erased whatever momentum the New Jersey Devils might have built up.

Los Angeles went on to earn a 6-1 victory and be the first team since 2007 to win the Stanley Cup on home ice.

    Devils spectacularly shot themselves in the foot. Three times in fact…..

    The kings were handed the Stanley cup, in fact the refs practically raised it first and handed it it off

      The “blind” part is certainly correct. You sure don’t sound “happy,” but I suppose that’s because you’re obviously blind. Funny how so many Devils fans find it easy to ignore the penalties their team wasn’t called for, while whining about the oh-so-obvious ones. The Devils let their emotions get the better of them. Carter leaping onto Quick and trying to punch him in the head was just one of the amazingly stupid things the Devils did to torpedo their own chances.

      And there were more than a couple questionable calls against the Kings, too. The difference (the HUGE difference) is that the Kings kept grinding and the Devils fell apart. Your post reflects the Devils attitude and THAT is why they lost.
