Frankie standing there, guarding no one. Gotta find a man and cover him.
His jump took him out of position.

****! 1-0 Blues have been controlling, bound to happen
The detail in his defensive play has been an issue repeatedly. He was told that specifically when scratched the first time as evidenced in his interview. Even tonight, caught short once defensively. He's in a dog fight for ice time and isn't making himself indispensable with his play when he is on the ice.
And this is the type of game where you really miss Erat. Our cycle game is abysmal / non-existant and almost no one seems to be able to skate the puck through the neutral zone. It is 80% defenseman shooting for a tip at the red line to get it into the zone.
