This is a example of how richie isnt a good defensive forward. Nor should he be on the top line.
You are right that he was correctly covering the point when I thought that he wasn't (because I didn't see a player on the point). However just before the shot the player on the point moved inside and Kopitar didn't see it. There is a very good replay later, showing view from (behind) goalie towards Couture and Kopitar. You can see that at the moment of shot Kopitar is covering nothing, there is nobody on the point.
