Blaming that on PK is looking for an excuse to side iwth the coach.
Totally agree. People are asking why you would pinch with the 4th line on, but if you check everyone's positioning before you do, anything to help the 4th line maintain pressure longer in the offensive zone is a good thing. The fact that we maintained possession after the pinch justifies PK's aggressive decision, and had the rest not played out like it did it would have turned out to be a rare good shift for that line, and possibly set up the 1st line with an offensive zone faceoff at least.
