The Biggest Goat: Bernier, Leighton, others

Name your all time goat and why.....

For me it's been all of our goaltenders for the most part but 2010 Leighton still takes the cake....

LOS ANGELES Marty McSorley, you're good.

Same goes for Esa Tikkanen and Roberto Luongo. New Jersey Devils forward Steve Bernier with one of the worst-timed and ill-advised checks in NHL playoff history has let you all off the hook as Stanley Cup Final goats.

Bernier won't get his name on the Stanley Cup hoisted by the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night at Staples Center for the first time in franchise history, but he arguably is the most responsible for the Kings' series-clinching 6-1 victory in Game 6.

Lagging far behind the action, Bernier's brutal boarding of Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi drew a major penalty and a game misconduct. That cleared the way for Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis to score on the five-minute power play that ensued.

"It's going to take a long time to get that play off my mind," Bernier said.
