I just think Marc is much more at fault for the goal. If he keeps his foot on the post, that play by Kunitz probably doesn't even result in a scoring chance. Instead, it winds up being a goal. That's a terrible goal. Boyle forced Kunitz behind the net and usually the play ends there. Should he have rode him in to the boards? Yeah, but Kunitz with just a desperate throwing the puck in front shouldn't have gone in. A goalie's job is to bail out his defense if they make a minor mistake like that. Not turn a harmless and desperate centering feed in to a goal. If you want to give Boyle some blame for that goal, I'm not going to argue with it...but the majority of the blame should go to Denis. That's not a play where the puck ends up in the back of the net.
