NHL fans watching Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Colorado Avalanche and the Tampa Bay Lightning wondered where Pat Maroon called for a penalty after scoring.

When Artturi Lehkonen gave the Avalanche a 2-1 lead in the second half, Maroon was frustrated that a penalty was not awarded against Colorado defender Josh Manson. Maroon then took out his troubles with an obvious swipe at Manson, which broke his cane.

Colorado held a one-goal lead after Lehkonen’s eighth game of the postseason. It came on assists from Manson and Nathan MacKinnon and gave the Avalanche some hope of finishing the series on the road.
