There is no major defensive breakdown in that play.
It doesn't matter if it's a shot or pass? If it's a pass Hank has to start sliding over to either break it up or get over for the save leaving the 5 hole uncovered. Even If it was a shot it was clearly going far side off the stick, which is why Hank was sliding over anyway, but the angle was changed by DZ. I wouldn't blame anyone really. MDZ is trying to block a cross ice pass and just doesn't get enough of it... Does every goal need to be off of either a major defensive breakdown or a softie?
