Avalanche HC Jared Bednar reacts too-many-men complaints

Colorado Avalanche coach Jared Bednar has seen the complaints that too many men on the ice penalty were not called on Wednesday’s team’s overtime goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and he doesn’t agree.

“I saw it. I thought it was nothing, honestly,” Bednar said Thursday morning. via George Stoia of the Denver Gazette. “It happens every other shift of every game.

“It’s part of the game. It’s a fluid game. You change spontaneously. You watch that clip and you put that clip back — and I’ve already done it multiple times to see exactly what they’re talking about — and Tampas has two guys with theirs jumping up [defense] come from the ice in the zone. I count seven [players] in one place. So that’s it. This is how the game is played. I don’t see it as a break, as a non-break. I think it’s actually nothing.”

Avalanche center Nazem Kadri scored in Game 4 after 12 minutes into overtime to give the team a 3-1 lead.
