]Had DD really lost this battle, the D would have recovered the puck solo, he would have passed it to the centre much higher in his zone, and he would have had more transition options.
Cane's D was PLAYING THE MAN
Desharnais was PLAYING THE PUCK

Cane's D take the man out
DD looses the puck

Plain and simple.....DD failed to do the play he was looking for and Canes D succeed at the play he was looking for. Clean 1 on 1 battle lost here.

Exactly...some should know the difference between playing the man and playing the puck.

Geeze, some posters are trying way too hard!

And some should try a little bit more....

Cause i can show many you many exemple of 2 on 1 battle...but this was a clear one on one battle. The other guys is like 10 feet away from the play.
