What I guarantee you the coaches are going to breakdown is that Z should have read the play defensively and been crashing down to neutralize the odd-man situation down low on the backside with the other two forwards high...
Yeah, it's a tough spot to be in, but you still have to decide to go somewhere. Bear in mind, I'm not blaming Carle; a bunch of people botched their assignments way more than he did before it even got there. G doesn't need to finish the hit there, Syvret should have stayed to the slot, and Zherdev was obviously in no man's land. But Carle still isn't a saint.
That play was a collapse all over the ice.
