Yeah, it was a kick. But, yeah, I’m in agreement with Jared Bednar too. Why do other NHL teams get to kick pucks in lately, and it counts, but it doesn’t count for the Avs? And, frankly, it wasn’t that blatant of a kick. But, it was a kick.
A kick in the pants is what it was for Avs fans leaving Ball Arena, who saw their beloved heroes almost come back from a late 4-1 deficit before losing 5-3. Tyson Jost’s goal that looked to have tied it late was disallowed by the Toronto Zapruder Film bureaucrats, and that was that.
