Harding's 2nd goal was much, much weaker than anything Backstrom gave up last night. I agree that Backstrom had to be yanked, but I think Yeo was hoping to escape the last 2:45 of the period before doing it, which I don't necessarily disagree with. If the 3rd goal comes with 8 minutes left in the 1st, he probably (hopefully) makes the change right then.
