The last 2 goals were caused by momentum but were lucky and maybe illegal in nature. The 2nd goal looks to be either(take your pick) a high stick or a high glove, how is the replay NOT conclusive?
Lindback was very shaky, TB was even lucky it was only 3-0. He had 2 other pucks behind him that managed to stay out, as big as he is, he is very awkward in close.
All that being said, I still think we need a big stay at home "crease cleaner" that can play 17-19 minutes and help protect those kinds of leads. A younger version of Gill. Tinordi will eventually be a deluxe version of that player(20-24 minute) who dominates down low.
Linback should not be held responsible for any of the three goals. Gio's was a pretty luck tip in, and he was left open - where was the coverage? Subban's goal was due to lots of traffic in front of the net - D needed to clear it out a bit. Moen's goal was just a cluster-poop effort by the D and the wingers back-checking, which led to a large scramble.
I don't think Linback was shaky at all. Lucky on a few occasions, sure. He was absolutely solid when the team was making a comeback and was a beast in OT.
As for Hedman's goal, there was no distinct "punching" movement on Hedman's second goal. He had his stick tied up, he tried to get it free and in doing so, his gloves came up. That combined with the pass going high due to a tip, led to a fluky but legal goal.
