I agree but unless this guy can fly, he wasn't gonna catch the two forwards attacking.
He was the closest forward to the play and should have least tried ... it was a horrible pinch by Brisebois, but it was also a horrible job of effort or covering by A.K.
I just watched this afternoon the final game of the 93 cup from the DVD set and you know what stood out the most for me?? How defensively disciplined that team was, the forwards always covered the point, always were back covering for pinching defenseman, I was amazed at how obvious it is how some of our forwards completely disregard this aspect of the game once you watch that team.
Carbo, Keane, Brunet, Muller, Bellows, Damphouse even guys like Diprieto, Lebeau, Leclair were very responsible on their own end and always covered their D ...
Why now for Denis? Why not after the 3rd goal? Well, I hope it doesn't mean Halak is hurt. I bet Carey with a sore groin could do better than he did in the first. Put us behind the 8-ball and with out putrid PP and offense, especially the road variety, up against the Devils that's asking for trouble. Still, anyone else recall another similarly disheartening 3-1 deficit after two last year that wound up a 4-3 victory in regulation? Meh, the Devils just lost a game, Sutter whipped them for blowing it last year and our offense is not the same even when we aren't missing 3 of our top guns.
