I'm not going to put too much on Ellis. The face-off goal was deflected in by Hannan. He did slide the goal in but he was recovering from Hannan getting beat and falling down.
the first play he pinched to hold the puck in and got back to control the 2nd winger, Hannan didn't close the gap and allowed an easy pass to the 3rd forward in..
Ellis last - was at the end of the game, I do believe.
All and all, Ellis just wasn't strong enough to cover for Hannan falling down, just being slow, with no gap control.
