IMO what happened was Brassard wanted Andy to pass it behind the net to the near (to him) corner instead of going to get it himself. Problem is Andy had the puck at the faceoff circle, and would have to skate with it for a few strides before he could rim it around. The angle from where he was made it impossible. Especially with a goalie stick. And a goalie who is not very good at handling the puck. It turned out OK in the end but Andy should have just sat on it.
