Eh, yes and no. I do agree that Dubinsky screwed up big time by also jumping in, but Bickel did not get the puck deep when he pinched. You can't pinch and then immediately fumble the puck, and this isn't the first time he's made some bad pinches.

I think Bickel has some good potential but he needs to pull it back a little bit and not be so eager to pinch. He does it a LOT and he's not very good at it
