Carlyle was right to call out both of them. If you lose a draw that badly in a pivotal situation of the game you have no business playing C in the NHL, in fact most players in that situation will focus on NOT losing the draw cleanly more than winning it. I like Grabovski by and large, but man that was awful. And independent of his bad rebound control (and especially so considering it wasn't even a rocket shot) Scrivens shouldn't have had his glove up in the 'WTF' gesture to Gunnarson after. Not excusing Gunnarson's poor positioning and compete level on the box out, but if Scrivens had handled the puck properly it wouldn't have been the issue it was. What a disappointing end to the game, but I'll stay upbeat because the team is playing well fairly consistently at least and we haven't seen that in years. Also love Kadri's compete level, really great to see
