He pulled Harding and replaced him with a veteran who has seen it all and could handle the situation. Not the same thing as pulling Backstrom and replacing him with a doe eyed rookie who has never seen anything like the Chicago Blackhawks. Very different scenarios imo.

A TO should have certainly been called after the 2nd goal knowing that you are not pulling Backstrom just to give Backs a chance to get his head together though.
