Nazem Kadri savage message to haters after winning Stanley Cup vs. Lightning

The Colorado Avalanche defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals Sunday night to claim their first championship since 2001. It was also truly remarkable how the Avalanche pulled it off. They became only the second team ever to win 10 postseason games from behind.

As tight as this series was played at times, Avalanche center Nazem Kadri left his mark. After winning the title, Kadri had a message for all his haters.

“Anyone who thought I was a liability in the playoffs can kiss my ass,” Kadri said. The Colorado forward was criticized early in the playoffs for some defensive errors. He was also always a point of contention for some of his plays.

In Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, Kadri injured his thumb. It required surgery and many believed he would not return during the playoffs. He missed the first three games of the Stanley Cup Finals but returned triumphant in Game 4. What a return it was. He scored the deciding goal in overtime, tipping the streak in Colorado’s favour. However, even that was not without a bit of controversy.

After the game, it was reported that Tampa Bay was upset that the Avalanche were not called off for a “too many men on the ice” penalty during Kadri’s goal. Video replay showed Colorado actually had six skaters, but winners go for the loot.

Kadri had the best season of his career this year with the Avalanche. In his 13th season in the NHL, he had career-high 87 points, 28 goals and 59 assists. Now he’s the Stanley Cup champion.
