Continued: Wild notes: Fontaine growing into role

Bordeleau said he will continue to be physical.

“I can’t change my game, no matter what happens — 5-0, 0-5, 1-1, I’ve got to play the same game every time,” he said.

Oh, no … not the NHL

With the NHL continuing to debate if there’s a way to add coach’s challenges in future seasons, Avs coach Patrick Roy is all for it.

Two instances in the first round could have been examined if he had a coach’s challenge, Roy said. In Game 2, P.A. Parenteau was called offside before an empty-net goal. Replays appeared to show he was onside, and Marco Scandella scored for the Wild on the ensuing shift.

In the final minute of Game 3, Jonas Brodin of the Wild sent a puck into the stands. That would have been a penalty, but linesman Shane Heyer felt the puck deflected off Nathan MacKinnon’s stick.

“This is a situation where you should have the right to challenge,” Roy said Thursday. “I think if the league tried to go in that direction, I think it would be better for our game. And I think it would take some pressure off the referees.

“And I understand how they feel when they’re on the ice. They want to make sure they’re 100 percent. If they have just a small doubt, they don’t feel comfortable to make [the Brodin] call.

“It’s a quick call, a quick decision. It’s not as simple as it appears.”

Of course, after Saturday’s game, the Wild wouldn’t mind replay either. On the Avs’ tying goal, by Parenteau, Paul Stastny appeared to be offside.

Etc.
