Anybody notice Regin's AMAZING play behind the net at the start of the clip? Wow we should totally scratch Zmitty in favour of giving Regin his minutes...

The only thing that you could blame Alfredsson for there is maybe making a bit of contact with the stick. It wasn't Alfredsson's fault...if anything it was a fluky goal because the puck was whiffed on.
Yes, his pad was down when he slid over, but since the shot was fanned he had to use his skate to stop his slide, and needed to lift his knee in order to do that.
