Even if you aren’t a hockey fan, you’ve probably heard some of the buzz that came from last nights Stanley Cup finale. The Kings won the game 6-1 and took home the franchise’s first Stanley Cup Championship. The real story came in the first period when journeyman Steve Bernier took out some frustration on Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi with a brutal boarding penalty. Scuderi crumpled to the ice, blood spilling from his nose and mouth as Bernier was escorted to the locker room with a game misconduct. As the Kings took to the five minute power play, one goal was scored. Then another…then another. Devils fans were not impressed and they took to twitter to let out their frustrations…NSFW style!

If you thought the hit didn’t warrant a five minute major you are out of your mind. Scuderi had just gotten rid of the puck and clearly had his back to Bernier who showed no signs of slowing whatsoever. Maybe there could have been a penalty called on the Gionta hit moments before, but that does not warrant the bullsh*t move that Bernier pulled. Also, any delusional Devils fan that thinks Bernier is the sole reason they lost needs to grow up. Yes, the play clearly swung the game, but New Jersey had two overtime games earlier in the series and couldn’t capitalize on either of them. However, it’s quite clear that a lot of Devils fans are not happy with poor Steve Bernier. Dumb penalty? Yes. Death threats? I don’t know about that.
