both players are responsible, there were two mistakes made, not one, and that goal doesn't fall entirely on rosi's shoulders either
I dont see it that way. If Rosi gets in Rupp's way theres no shot. No shot=no scoring chance, and he had plenty of time to get to Rupp. Once Rupp is 15 feet out, inside the faceoff dot, uncontested, you're % of making a save go way down. Its rare that you see a defenseman let a guy walk in like that, thats why Rosi was called out by many after the game.
