ok, I just rewound it. Ribiero would have skated past Lubo if he didn't turn around. It's that simple. He started playing it exactly as you, I and the experts would dictate, but they had too much speed, and passed it at the right moment. If ya want to keep arguing go ahead, but at least look at it again first. If he continued skating backward, he was toast just like french Frankie was in Phoenix.
I looked at it a few times. He didn't need to turn around. He needed to stop the pass. If the Dallas players don't make the play when they did, they run out of room and have nothing to shoot at. He basically opened up the lane and created the scoring opportunity.
