Lack of communication. Both players were on different pages.
The puck was in no-danger territory when he all of a sudden decided to leave his assignment and kamikaze out to the boards. The whole point of a box is to keep the puck on the outside. You don't panic if it's that high. You never, ever, leave your weak side high position to run for the puck on the strong side when the puck is basically at the blueline.
