Are the defensive gaffs of late just their own craptastic play or does it start with the utter lack of support from the forwards causing their poor decisions because they have no outs
(although I would think an NHL defensman would have a clue how to play a two on one
Tonight it was the dmen messing up all on their own. Myers on the first two goals and Ehrhoff/Sekera on the 3rd goal had little, if anything, to do with the forwards. But many times in the past its been the forwards. When they leave the gaps too big between them, particularly when they are cheating out of the zone.
