I can't believe people blame Marleau for that. He's literally the only one that plays defense on that play.
I harp on Marleau as much as anyone but that goal was in no way shape or form on him. Vlasic and Cooch got caught behind the net and Patty shifted over to Kopitar, skated hard the whole way back, and disrupted him enough to help prevent him from scoring. That play should've been blown dead anyway when Niemi covered the puck.
