Avs goalie Berra lays devastating body check on Penguins’ Plotinikov
Colorado Avalanche goalie Reto Berra certainly made sure the Pittsburgh Penguins felt his presence during Wednesday night's tilt.
In the the second period of Wednesday’s game, with the Avalanche leading 2–1, Penguins forward Sergei Plotnikov attempted to go for a loose puck behind the net, but was met by Berra, who was not about to let his foe get it.
A scrum ensured after the altercation, but Berra made it clear he had other priorities, like staying hydrated. Unfortunately for him, the officials made it their business and gave him two minutes for interference.
Berra is no stranger to irking his opponents, as his post-goal celebration from his AHL days would indicate.
