Dustin Penner – ‘Impressive when you have enough gall to guess’

Game 3 post-game quote from Dustin Penner…

“I find it very tough to believe that a player as intelligent as Trevor would run the goalie. I asked him and he said he was pushed from behind. I believe him. I’m disappointed in the refs that they could make a gutsy call like that in the last 30 seconds of a period. It’s pretty impressive when you have enough gall to guess. I’m going to look at the tape and see if he got pushed because I know what it is like to drive the net.”

Lots more quotes to come.

  1. Aaron DeVandry says:

    I agree. Marleau gave Lewis a push into Niemi. Kings were already a man down. Refs don’t make that call unless it is completely, 100% Lewis’ fault, and in this case I think there was definitely enough of a shove from Marleu to question the call.
