Still not something you can blame someone for. The pass made it out front to the one of the two extra opponents and picked off an easy goal.

It's 6 on 4. Not even strength. No one played that poorly.
Not when you are down by 2 men. When you are down 2 guys you clog up the middle and try to disrupt cross ice passes and keep shots to the outside. Chasing/pressuring the puck carrier only opens up 2 on 1 situations down low cause you've removed yourself from the dangerous scoring areas. Which is exactly what happened.

I have honestly never seen such a uniform response on this board.
Yakupov over Murray was about as one sided as I've seen an HFOil poll. We'll see how this one goes

So we shouldn't be *****ing about the guy who is primarily bleeding goals this season? Stauffer is really an apologist at this point.
