I thought Yeo coached this game really, really poorly. Even the press conference was mostly the reporters second-guessing his decisions. Between goalie questions, missed timeout opportunities, and a veteran player saying it was the attitude on the bench that doomed them, I don't think it's unreasonable to critique his performance a bit.
The timeout, I'll give you. He probably should've taken it after the 2nd goal and definitely should've taken it after the 3rd.
As far as pulling Backs, the 3rd goal was scored with less than 3 minutes to go in the 1st, I think he just wanted to get to intermission to make the change. It's not like Hossa's goal was a soft one anyways.
