Erik Karlsson has a message for critics after his egregious gaffe during Friday’s 3-1 loss to Montreal:
Giveaway? Yes, it happens. I am who i am and will never change that. Peace.

That Popeye-like statement was delivered via Twitter this evening, hours after Karlsson badly turned the puck over to Habs forward Ryan White for the game’s opening goal:
It was a rough night for Karlsson overall.
Aside from the White turnover, he failed to score a point (after notching three in Game 1), and finished with a minus-1 rating with just two shots.
That said, he didn’t shy away from questions after the game. Nor did his confidence appear to be shaken.
“I’m probably going to do that a few more times in my career,” he said.
