If Boston would have put in two goals on those turnovers, all the sudden Enstrom had a terrible game. Funny.

Another terrible defenisve play.
Yeah, thing is, he singlehandedly stopped the Bruins from having atleast another 10 quality scoring chances. By making plays another D-man wouldn't do.

And no, not really. Lost coverage on their C, who just skated away from Antropov when Enström had already commited (and later stopped) to the guy with the puck. That is a terrible defensive play, but not by Toby.

Edit: You are of course free to think what you want about Toby's defensive play, but most people, and the stats, agree that he's on of the best players in the league at stopping the other team from having chances, and that is while playing with a rover in Byfuglien.
