I disagree. Skaters can largely impact a game positively even in a loss. Remember how McDonagh played a 1000 minutes vs. the Caps last year in game 3 which ended in triple OT? What if a fluke bounce got by Lundqvist while Bickel and Stralman are on the ice? Are we supposed to fault McDonagh somehow, despite playing his butt off?
