I was following the play by play for the game and noticed a lot of these:
13:43 Detroit Giveaway by Jakub Kindl in defensive zone
That's true, and I don't want to downplay it. But it also should be pointed out that Kindl and Dekeyser (or Lashoff and Dekeyser) is nothing close to a top pair. And yet were forced to play as one against one of the better top six teams in the league. And we still only lost 2-1 in OT.
So while we should definitely not make excuses for anyone. We should put it into context. Kindl was bad. But not so bad that it kept us out of the game. Hell, if Pulkkinen does what he's supposed to and buries that open netter we win the game in regulation. So there's that.
I missed the game, sucks to hear Pulkkinen missed a great opportunity. I like that kid a lot
