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.
His lackadaisical effort (slow feet + wide turn) applied no pressure to Yandle and as you pointed out he completely failed to get his stick into the obvious passing lane.
Potter is dumb and Potter is lazy. If it were up to me, he'd never play another game in Blue and Orange.
