That's a fact. He's also had his linemates do dumb things with the puck a number of times: Ovechkin, Backstrom & Semin all turning the puck over in danger areas leading to goals against in transition. Kreider's goal was the most on him of any of them and that, as with some others, were very stoppable shots.

He's been a weak link in meeting the opposition's push in this series in particular but still not quite an outright liability. Not worthy of the TOI he's been given but not as bad as that stat would suggest.
