Sergei Kostitsyn’s Inexplicable Line Change is the NHL’s “Worst Play of the Year” (Video)

Earlier in the month, the Nashville Predators decided to experiment with their power-play by moving forward Sergei Kostitsyn to the point on their first power-play unit.

They might want to abandon that experiment after watching Kostitsyn inexplicably quit on a play and go off for a line change after the puck bounced over his stick and into the neutral zone during a Predators’ power-play last night.  The result was a 2-on-1 for the Oilers’, which Lennart Petrell converted for the game-winning goal during Edmonton’s 2-1 victory.
