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.
The Moen goal he allowed the puck to get by him short side which led to a mad scramble. If he had stopped the initial shot taht wouldn't have happened. Plus there were other occasions where he was all over the pace and we didn't score. He got lucky on the Markov shot taht hit his stick. Good desperation save but 90% of that half of the net was open.
