Both defencemen did what they were supposed to do once they realized that Khabibulin intended to play the puck. It is not like they were wrong in thinking that Khabi was going to play the puck, because that is what he tried to do, he just screwed up that is all. No lack of communication just a lack of execution on Khabi's part.
If you look at it again Souray is going directly for the puck, as he should be, but when he sees Khabby come out to play it, he kind of does a double take and then goes towards the corner. If he was going straight for the corner he never would have been going towards the puck.
