The puck was in the zone & he is no where to be found. Even with the blueline breakdown, he needs to read the play & cover Neal.
Kreider tried to hit Martin at the blue line and took himself completely out of the play, you can see him hustling back in the last frame.

I also feel the need to re-iterate that I wasn't trying to praise Tangradi for his play, I only intended to tell KIRK of a play where Tangradi's presence had a positive impact. I was thinking a goal scoring situation would be easy to remember, and when KIRK was unsure as to how that play had played out I posted a couple of pictures to show said play.
