You rarely saw this kind of thing with Roloson. You saw it a lot with Conklin. This is like flashback to Conkannen days.

Its overcompensation. First goal happens because Dubs is down and out and over committed to one side, and he's shown to be helpless once he's down. He's out of position. If he's in his proper set its not a goal, and you don't have Fistric, Gagner, etc trying to play goal there.

This is textbook players not having faith in the goalie getting it done. I saw Stoll and good Horcoff making these kind of mistakes with Conklin in net.
DD is thinking too much or thinking too little --whatever he is doing. his mental problem became more obvious last night
