The Ericsson giveaway on the GWG was freaking hilarious.

That 20-second sequence from the 6:00 mark of that video onwards is one big Ericsson fail. The attempted clear on his forehand was weak, but nothing out of the ordinary from Ericsson. Then the giveaway off of the backhand into the crease looked like a lame beer league "pass". Then he just stands there and waves meekly as Kucherov strides past him to knock the puck past Howard.

Did he pull Mrazek with over three minutes left?  It isn't like Patrick Roy was considered some genius and wasn't that his thing?  Weird.

I know he "plays" both offense and defense, but what is the point of Luke Witkowski outside of being able to carry a warm body that hides their lack of cap space by playing offense and defense?  He played 7 minutes last night...which was by far his highest TOI so far!  If you can barely trust a guy to play 4 minutes a game he should not be in the NHL, freaking sad.

What difference does it make if they give up an ENG in a loss versus losing by 1 fewer goal?

Well obviously a loss is a loss and if your comparison is not giving up a ENG and losing by two vs giving one up and losing by three then ya who cares.  But my beef is with the process not the results.  I would rather the team dig in at 5 on 5 with a goalie in the net to try to get a goal for a couple minutes rather than risk giving up an easy ENG with three minutes left to make it a 3 goal hole instead of 2.  Push that risk to the last minute.  The Wings were dominating the underlying stats for most of the game so it isn't like this was their only hope: http://corsica.hockey/games/?id=2017020092 (and 5 on 5 http://corsica.hockey/games/?id=2017020092).  Basically to me it is too desperate of a play too early that allows the other team to completely bury you with an ENG.
