from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,
I barely caught this with the naked eye at the end of the game, when the Jets won with 1.7 seconds left in overtime on Blake Wheeler’s goal. Technology allows us to see just what a little cheap shot it was by Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien right after the goal went in. This probably won’t result in any suspension, but rest assured the Avs won’t forget it the next time the teams play.
He’s not easy to put a body on, but the Avs need to lay Byfuglien on his butt the next time they play for this. Semyon Varlamov almost did, with a full stick swing his direction.
How was that not goalie interference on Byfuglien, that first shove in the crease? I don’t think Patrick Roy had seen this when he did his post-game presser, otherwise we probably would have heard a lot about it.
