During his post-game press conference, Jon Cooper, the coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning, answered one question. He argued that the Avalanche’s overtime goal shouldn’t have counted without going into specifics regarding whether Colorado had too many guys on the ice. This one is going to hurt a lot more than the others,” Cooper remarked on Wednesday night following a 3-2 Stanley Cup Final Game 4 defeat. “I find it difficult. It will be challenging for me to speak. I’ll have to speak now. Tomorrow, I’ll talk to you. When you see the winning goal, you’ll understand what I mean. We probably still should be playing, and my heart aches for the players. Tomorrow, I’ll be available.
Kadri’s goal at 12:02 of overtime counted and the Avalanche took a 3-1 series lead, putting the Lightning’s three-peat bid in deep trouble.The NHL released a statement saying the penalty is a judgment call that can be made by the on-ice officials. Each of the four officials said they did not see a too many men on the ice situation on the winning play. The call is not subject to video review.
And just watch this team, what they’ve gone through and the battling that’s gone on. And we’re all in this together. Players, coaches, refs, everybody. I’ve been part of some heartbreaking losses and defeats to the teams that took us out and been with a group that just fights, fights and fights, and they fought their way to a third Stanley Cup final in a row.”
