Canadiens player passes in front of an open net and his fans immediately turn on him

What was he thinking?

Sven Andrighetto has won the hearts of Montreal Canadiens fans over the last couple of years with a good work ethic and timely offensive contributions. But he drew their ire on Tuesday with one of the most confounding decisions by a Hab all season.

Thanks to some luck and good positioning, Andrighetto found himself with the puck and a wide open Detroit Red Wings net in front of him. And for some reason ... he passed?
