Its called being a defensive liability and giving up a goal because of a defensive lapse. Remember last season's series against the Caps in which Kreider made a perfect blind pass to Ovechkin, gift wrapping him a goal? There is your negative goal.

In Kreider's defense, he hasn't been nearly as brutal defensively this season. But he also hasn't been nearly as potent offensively. I'm pretty neutral on whether Kreider plays or not... If he brings the same offensive game he did in last year's playoffs, then yea, he's an improvement over pretty much anyone on the 4th line. Problem is he isn't bringing that game. I don't understand the people throwing hissy fits about him not playing. Playoffs are not the time to let a young kid develop or work through inconsistencies in his game. You ice the roster you think gives you the best chance to win.
