This is where Granlund physical limitations should have cost us the opportunity.
-Granny doesn't give up though and checks a hesitant Garrison as he tries to clear.
-Garrison fails to move the puck, and since Granlund separated him from the puck, Cullen picks it up and deals to Setoguchi, who makes a pretty move to score.
Bottom line: Granlund had effort, but
Garrison's poor play did more to make that goal
that Granlund's good play did.
Yes, it's someone's elses fault that we made a number of good plays to get a goal. I'm sure it's Garrison's fault that Seto made that wicked move to put it in the net too.
Give credit where credit is due.
Those three guys earned that goal through good play. We have enough problems, we don't need extra bs on top of it.
