If you going to bash McD, at least use a good example cause the one you used he did nothing wrong. Girardi was the one that should have taken care of that guy.

Not always. Some teams have their D pinch up on that guy like that so he doesn't have a free lane to the net. When Girardi steps up like that everyone has to slide over (McDonagh) and down (Boyle to block the passing lane, which if you look at the picture, his stick is in the process of moving into the lane). It's a diamond.
