I also have to echo the sentiments around Henrik's actions (or non-actions) afterwards -
he looked back and didn't even bother to grab Rypien and lead him away... hardly a captain-like move IMO
Are you insane? Henrik is supposed to put his arm around Rypien's shoulder and coddle him back to the dressing room to be considered a good captain? He's the captain of the team, not Rypien's therapist, or his AA buddy, or his personal attendant. Rypien's actions are his own fault and giving Henrik grief because he didn't jump into a stupid situation is stupid in itself.
