Not sure this is the proper positioning.
Against the Devils Friday night, Braden Holtby gave up the game’s only goal on a bad giveaway. Holtby went behind the net, held onto the puck too long, then got stick checked and passed the puck right to a Devils player. Boom. Game-winning goal.
Saturday night, Justin Peters had his own Braden Holtby moment and it was equally as painful.

As Peters corralls a dump-in, he decides to pass it to Brooks Orpik. Then he notices a Blues player coming behind the net fast, so he tries to go the other way to Carlson. He whiffs.
Oh no, not again.
Can either Holtby and Peters play with a tether next game?
