I certainly agree that it was a bad pass from Brassard.

But I also feel that there is a very small chance the goal happens if Zuccarello covers for McDonaugh instead of making a risky play to try and win the puck, which led to him getting beat by Marchand despite his best efforts.

If he would have covered I feel he can pretty easily get close enough to Bergeron so that Stralman can cover Marchand in the middle. I agree with you that it was a bad turnover from Brassard but it is also a very bad read by Zuccarello, which turned a bad turnover into an excellent scoring chance along with somewhat poor defending from Stralman.
