Well that's why we watch entire games and not just highlights
But you are correct, Phaneuf's game can lapse, as I still think he tries to do a bit too much from the backend. This is likely do to a poor supporting cast, however, because when the Leafs are playing confidently (Reimer helps with this), Phaneuf doesn't seem to force hits or rushes. I didn't think he was particularly guilty of this last night, as the goals against were typically the result of blown coverage by the forwards (Kessel and JVR), but the whole team (sans perhaps Kadri's line) was just terrible.
