This was literally a game-changer in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final: On a brutal sequence between the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings, forward Steve Bernier of New Jersey hit Rob Scuderi from behind into the end boards — cutting him, earning a five-minute major and a game misconduct.
Like we said: Game-changer. The Kings scored three power play on the five-minute major — two by Dustin Brown, another by Trevor Lewis — to lead 3-0; leaving Devils coach Peter DeBoer screaming at the officials about the missed call on Jarret Stoll's earlier hit on Stephen Gionta.
Here's the Bernier hit with the Stoll hit at the end of the clip:
The Kings have had one of the worst power plays in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Not tonight.
