That's 11 minutes where a guy who was clearly busting his butt and 1/3rd of your best line could have affected the outcome, but wasn't given the chance.

Instead the player who was on the ice for two goals only minutes prior is sent in to hold onto the lead.
I already clariried in the thread that Yak only missed one shift in the last 5mins of the game. Yak last played in the game with only 5:58 left. This is on NHL stats. He didn't miss 11 mins, he missed 5. An inconsequential 5 minutes.
