Kukla's Korner Hockey

I don’t want to take anything away from Pavel Datsyuk’s equalizer late in the third because it was a beauty — he got half a step on Sbisa racing down the left wing before sizzling a wrister that beat Hiller high on the short side. But honestly, that’s a goal the Anaheim goalie can’t allow. He played it way too conservatively, staying deep in his crease and waiting to react to a pass that never came. If Hiller skates out a foot or so, he cuts down the angle and probably takes that hole away. Instead, his caution let it get to overtime. It was Hiller’s only mistake on the night, and it likely cost Anaheim the game.
