I don't really think that's fair. The guy had an unpressured, albeit unscreened, shot from the center of the ice inside the top of the circles. That's prime scoring area. There's a reason that guy was one of the brightest young dmen in the NHL last year too.

That 2nd Marlies goal was a thing of beauty, just awesome puck movement.

MacKenzie got handled on that goal that was waved off. I'm a big fan of his, didn't notice him much on Friday night which isn't a bad thing at all with him. Not sure how he looked last night, but he didn't look good on that play.

Glad to hear Girgensons looked better last night than Friday night. He made waves in his first shift Friday night with a big hit and then was pretty much invisible after that. It looked to me like on that 2-on-1 Girgensons really wanted to pass the puck and when that option closed off he just kind of froze up.
