Avalanche HC Jared Bednar reacts too-many-men complaints

Colorado Avalanche coach Jared Bednar has seen the complaints that a too many men on the ice penalty wasn’t called on the team’s overtime goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday 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. “That happens every second shift of every game.

“That’s part of the game. It’s a fluid game. You’re changing on the fly. You look at that clip and you back that clip up — and I did multiple times already to see exactly what they’re talking about — and Tampa’s got two guys jumping on with their [defense] coming off the ice in the zone. I count seven [players] at one point. So that is what it is. That’s the way the game’s played. I don’t see it as a break, a non-break. I think it’s actually nothing.”

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