Pateryn diserve all the credits on that play.
You're right on that one. DD gets pancaked in the corner, and Pateryn made an excellent (risky) read on the pinch, deflects the defenseman's pass to Pacioretty (whose only play was the dump off to DD), and then he's back in position and yelling (can hear on the video) to DD with his stick cocked before DD even raises his head to make the pass.
I've been tough on Pateryn in terms of what I think his upside can be, but that's big league read, reaction, and recovery/reset to start AND end that play.
