I put that goal in Kunitz by the way. He should know by now that Orpik likes to run around and make hits. He needed to be alert and be ready to cover for him.
He did cover for him, he just blew his coverage.
As a fwd you always backcheck to the middle when things breakdown. Hartnell was manned up and Kunitz floated to him and left CG wide open going to the post. I have no idea what he was thinking.
That's hockey 101 and Kunitz would be the first one to admit it.
