To me that's less of a "being unable to play defense" and more of a rookie mistake.
IMO, Girardi has the shooter. MDZ hits the brakes, God knows why, -> Kovalchuk gets away from. If he ignores the drop pass, let's Girardi take his man, sticks with his man, he's at least in range to get a stick on Kovalchuk's stick and prevent a scoring op. Then he can dump Kovy as well. I just don't know why you are making excuses for him on a play he so obviously and unequivocally botched. Stick to your man on a 2-on-2 is pretty straight forward.
