I mean, Lundqvist is going to make 30 saves per game - many of them quality saves - so just because the minus didn't happen doesn't mean Malik didn't turnover the puck with a pass up the middle in the defensive zone that resulted in a quality scoring chance against.
Which game was it over the weekend where Malik went totally out of position, running to the far corner during a PK, and left a guy open in front to score a goal. No minus, of course, we were shorthanded, but a brutal play nonetheless.
