Very bad defensive play as a team. It's not just the d-men, but a couple forwards as well, namely Sonne and Reaves.

Bishop is too big to be an effective goalie. He takes up lots of space, but once he's down in the butterfly position and gives up a rebound he gets beat five hole as he tries to recover or cannot snag it with his glove. Too many rebounds from Bishop.

Toivonen has looked better than Bishop, imo. Better rebound control and better positioning.
