And Gardiner...Good Gawd... Reimer was late getting to the cross-ice because he was entirely screened the whole time... way to box him out, Jake. Another guy in no-man's land.
Results speak for themselves... 3 guys without a clue about where to position themselves and the one guy who has a clue fell down.
Absolute freaking mess, no excuse for this garbage.
Crabb and Gardiner are where Wilson (or the PK coach) wants them. Crabb is down low for support on the weak side and Gardiner, like all of the other Leafs d-men, don't worry about boxing out their job is to get in the lane and block the shot. You can say Phaneuf and Bozak didn't execute, but the other two are doing the same things you'll see on every Leafs PK. Our d-men haven't boxed out players for years and the weak side winger collapses down for support. Seems like the players are where they should be, it's just not the right spots to be on that particular play.
