He was very good defensively here. That was really the only instance of Nikitin being out of position and was mostly due to miscommunication.

For Columbus, he was quite good defensively so I don't really know what you are talking about. They wouldn't excuse poor defensive play from him and really havent had reason to.

Just ask Viqsi, she will show you how the Tyutin-Nikitin pairing was statistically similar to the Weber-Suter pairing.
