Yeah and Dubnyk probably should've made the save. Yakupov made a bad pass/Edler made a great read. Usually goals don't happen because 1 person screwed up, but because multiple people screw up. The game happens fast, they're all rusty. Still Potter's read/react/gap control is (in my opinion) the primary error here. If he holds his blueline better, Gagner might catch Edler even though he's coasting on the backcheck, maybe? Maybe Edler dumps it in and goes for a change? who knows.... but giving up the blueline like that is a timing thing that doesn't come back overnight. I didn't say shoot Potter, waive him or bring back Kurtis Foster.....all I said was bad play.... happens. Did Gagner or Dubnyk help Potter ...no. Did Ganger cause Potter to give up the blueline like he was a member of the French Army? no. Gonna happen again and again.
