I am just turning the table around. If we are going to blame the first two line for NOT scoring, since it is there role, why not blame the THIRD line when they "allow" a goal? And PRAISE them and KISS their butt when they don't allow a goal? Would that be fairer?

Voilą.
To blaming a line for allowing one goal is beyond insane. Even if it is a checking line.
