Like... take the late 3rd period.

DD clearly, but really clearly wins a faceoff (against Sidney Crosby, of all people!), but Pacioretty screws it up with a very lazy icing.

DD then loses (unclear loss, but loss nonetheless, some of it due to the 4 other players) the ensuing faceoff.

The loss wasn't his problem -- should never have had to take the faceoff! And that guy Sid... I heard he's pretty good at faceoffs.
I saw plenty of people crapping on Pacioretty for that weak play last night.

Sometimes we want to see things, know what I mean? I suppose it's a matter of perception.
