All he did was protect himself for a blocked shot, which hurt his goalies chance of seeing the puck. He has to force him to the outside or inside so his other defender can converge on him together.
If it was a Flyer taking that shot everybody would have been giving credit to the shooter. People were saying how good of a shot Read's goal the other day was but two things it didn't nearly have the zip on it as Semin's & Nilsson had Read in his sight line.
