Ref gets decked during Stanley Cup Finals

During tonight’s Stanley Cup Final game between the New Jersey Devils and the Los Angeles Kings an unfortunate referee found himself in the direct path of a Devils defenseman who promptly dumped him to the ice. The ref was left visibly bleeding from the mouth. But, this is hockey so he just went right back to work.

One Bloody Ref. Total Gamer. #StanleyCup http://t.co/WRKXRhYv

Well done ref, you took one for the team..

Ref was in right position, the player made the right play by running the ref over. Kings player was smarter by using him as a pick/screen

Pretty sure that ref needs stitches #StanleyCup

He's a hockey ref, though, so I'm sure he'll stay in the game… right Linda Cohn and Steve Levy?

Poor ref. Got totally steamrolled by Devils defender and was partly to blame for a goal since he got in the way. Kings owning this game.

That ref took an absolutely crushing hit. That was pretty great.

In just watching two minutes of this game I got respect for this Hockey Ref. Got hit in the face but is still Ref'ing while bleeding.

That ref should get a raise. He's one tough s.o.b.
