Obviously they failed in the first goal and overall came close to the 2nd with a couple of major lapses - most overtly of those being Rick Ley's assault on Valery Kharlamov at the end of Game 6.

Question here is; should Billy Harris have sent Rick Ley home after that?

Craig Wallace
No, Rick Ley was part of the team and a team stays and plays together from start to finish. Otherwise and Billy Harris would have lost the room for the rest of the series.
