Today, he went the wrong way around the net on the third goal (same way as White) and it cost the team.
Plus -- lots of PP time and not much SH time
More about the bolded portion, IMO.
Tons of PP = no Lashoff on the ice.
Tons of ES/PK + blowout win = lots of Lashoff on the ice.
Babcock loves the guy, so he's going to keep getting ice time. It is worth noting that he looks like he took him off the top pair, finally. So he's at least sorta paying attention.
