I re-wound the tape to see who he beat on that play. It was Barnaby.

Great goal though. Too bad it didn't carry over into some better play being paired with JR.

Don't get me wrong, Luc is one of my all-time favorites, but I think he really has lost a step this year and it shows on the defensive side. His effort isn't so much the problem as his legs are.
