The second play, like you mentioned, he was holding on to the puck too long because he thought he could squeeze another chance out of a dead play instead of getting it deep and letting the forecheck go back to work. Skinner is a kid that loves to have the puck on his tape and there are times when you do that and make yourself a giant target. In both situations, he allowed himself to take hits that were otherwise not likely to happen.
Yeah..I agree with that.
