The footrace typically occurs after you've turned the puck over and are trying to recover. And Markov, I would say, doesn't make a large amount of turnovers or bad plays at the blueline. However, they are certainly amplified when he does because he can't get back as quickly as someone like Subban or Diaz might be able to.
turnovers will happen on the point. sometimes its bad ice, other times its player error, etc... his issue is that unless its the opposing teams goon it will result in an odd man rush.
