Scuderi’s fine after Bernier’s devastating hit

Rob Scuderi

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 11: Rob Scuderi #7 of the Los Angeles Kings is down on the ice after being hit by Steve Bernier #18 of the New Jersey Devils (not pictured) for a five minute major boarding penaly during the first period of Game Six of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final at the Staples Center on June 11, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Rob Scuderi went down hard after New Jersey’s Steve Bernier delivered a big hit from behind. There was blood on the ice when Scuderi finally got up and Bernier received a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct. That blow directly led to three power-play goals for the Los Angeles Kings.

If you missed the hit, you can view it here:

Scuderi was back for the start of the second period.

Scuderi previously won the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins back in 2009. He only has one point in the postseason, but Scuderi has been a huge part of the Kings’ defensive game. He ranks third on the team in playing time per game and he’s one of their go to guys when they’re shorthanded.
