Hank and Erixon are not to blame for the first goal.
Yeah, any time you're starting to put blame on the goalie or the lone defenseman left in yet another oddman rush, you have to start looking back at the mess that resulted in that play.

It's not Hank's and Erixon's fault they couldn't cover up for this team playing retarded hockey. If you do that, you basically say we are playing hockey which should allow oddman rushes. It's pretty much the opposite of the kind of hockey that made this team successful.

That goal is either on Bickel or the guy who is supposed to cover up for him when he does the patented, retarded NYR D-man pinch that we somehow keep doing, despite measly results pretty much since we started doing it. It's a breakdown in communication and it's on Torts for allowing them to keep doing that stuff.
