Martin St-Louis was playing his first game as the Habs' official head coach when he was interim last year. You have to accept that the kids make mistakes and you have to accept the coach's mistakes too.

In Wednesday's game, St-Louis made a decision that was heavily criticized. Here's what Sportsnet's Eric Engels had to say:
« Evgeni Dadonov took over for Juraj Slafkovsky on the Leafs' tying goal. He made the one play you don't want to make in this situation. All he had to do was shoot the puck into the back of the zone, but he committed a turnover that led to the Leafs' tying goal. » - Eric Engels

We understand St. Louis wanting to put a veteran on the ice when the team is leading by one goal with about two minutes left in the game. However, the coach will certainly have to rethink his priorities, as many players would have done a better job than Dadonov at this point, according to many.
Note that the goal is not to plant Martin St-Louis, who has done a great job since his arrival in Montreal. He's not the type of person to make the same mistakes twice, so he will certainly have taken notes.
You can see Dadonov's turnover that leads directly to William Nylander's goal below:
