Agree with that as well. What on Earth was he thinking. The one thing you don't allow in that instance is somebody getting by you and into the clear.

But the whole Pittsburgh club played that PP poorly. The idea in that situation is not to strictly hangback. you still want to be aggressive in NZ and not allow easy entry up ice.

The whole Pens set on that PP was too lax. Like they weren't competing. Thats the danger in becoming too passive in that situation and hanging back too much.
