Jared Bednar Says Key Tripping Call In Game 5 \'A Tough One\'  

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Jun 25, 2022 2:13 pm

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.

Bednar\'s team led the series 3-1 entering Game 5 with a chance to hoist the Cup on home ice. The Lightning earned a victory in part because of a tripping infraction levied against Cale Makar in the second period, leading to a 4-on-3 power-play goal from Tampa Bay forward Nikita Kucherov.

That wound up being the difference in Friday\'s outcome, which didn\'t sit well with Bednar.
