Well, looking at it again, he had more space than I remembered. Yeah, he had more options to wait a bit longer until the man was on him. It was unforced and a big error. He had a man coming right in his face though and probably had been told to keep the puck moving. Still an error. Where was the famed Erat puck hogging spin when we needed it? lol.
We don't disagree all that much. It's just that when you run the probabilities even a big error doesn't add that hugely to a chance of a loss when they are still so far away. We had too many guys low, it was far too easy to gain the zone. And just a moment later, if Ward does a job on the back side, we
win. (Although Ward didn't get help either and I think got bit confused as to who to cover.) I just agree with glenngineer's take that a
more people played big roles in the loss than just Erat.
