I checked, because I remember seeing him out there regularly, even in the 3rd, although numerous people are stating he was benched in 3rd.
In fact Yaks last shift ended with 5:58 left in the game. At which point it was 3-3 anyway. He had regular shifts all through the third prior to that.
Thank you. Now I know I wasn't hallucinating either. Yakupov played in the third and yet we still blew a lead. Maybe, just maybe, playing Yak in the third is not the key to success after all.
