Read: Devils coach Pete DeBoer was not happy with the refs last night

During his post game news conference last night, Pete DeBoer was asked about how the goal that Rick Nash scored went in the net.

DoBeoer said, “their guy was going to the net and kind of took Marty out a little bit. I believe that the ref was calling a penalty on us, which I didn’t understand for pushing him into Marty, I didn’t think that was the case and by the time Marty recovered from being bumped into the puck was in the net.” (Devils)

Brodeur said after the game that he didn’t know if it should be a penalty but guys get paid to go to the net and that is what Kreider did. (Star Ledger)

Jaromir Jagr said after the game that Kreider hit Brodeur, he wasn’t pushed into him yet the penalty was called on the Devils.  (NY Times)

Stan Fischler then asked DeBoer if he could explain the two penalties the Devils got in the third, Jaromir Jagr for cross checking Anton Stralman and Andy Greene for tripping Rick Nash, because it seemed like the Rangers took dives.

DoBoer said, “we have an embellishment call that we have been told repeatedly would be made and I don’t know why it wasn’t.” (Devils)

He's never happy. All that team and star do is cry and whine about everything.

I didn't see the Jagr penalty but I did see the Greene trip. It was a legit trip, Greene didnt really even protest the call.

Don't forget, the whining and crying isn't so much about complaining about the game that was just played, but preemptively working the officials for upcoming games. It's all gamesmanship.

Its a coaches job to whine. That being said, since he is the HC of the Devils, he's a bitch.

Yeah right, His guys are "angels" and would never do anything like that. If only Torts was here, he would have given him hell. Sore loser piece of *$#%!

DeBoer is like Bilicheck.  Sore loser.  Shut up and lose like an adult.  And stop looking like a child molester.

Stralman didnt embellish the hit. Jagr nailed him. Nash could have been called for a dive maybe and Kreider had the Devils D-man on him so that would have been tight call.

@Frank B do you really believe Nash would take a dive in the defensive end?
