I don't know if I'm reading to much into these quotes, but this is not what I expect of a captain:
"We have to do a better job of picking up our coverages around the net,"
[i.e blame Gomez
said Gionta, who was on the ice with linemate Scott Gomez for the last four Boston goals. "There were a couple of goals there, one was on a broken play off the rush and another was off a bad change in the overtime."
"We didn't get the puck in deep, then we made a turnover at the blue line
i.e blame Moen
, and we had a bad change coming back
i.e blame Subban
," Gionta said. "I was backchecking on a 3-on-1 and Ryder made a good shot..."
If he hadn't forgotten to mention that while backchecking on that 3 on 1 he also totally forgot about marking Ryder everything would be fine. For a captain that just has gone -3 in an imortant game I expect alot more accountability for his own faults.
