That threw off the timing of DZ going down to block out the pass, which allowed Ward to go around him. If Richards reacts instantly, Del Zotto is a stride further back when he goes down and Ward runs out of room.
Did anyone else see what I saw on that play?
Absolutely!! DZ's timing was wrong but the attempt was absolutely correct. (as per Brian Leetch). But that play was on Richards. He was slow to react. And when he did react he needed to take Perreault out of the play and let Lundqvist take Ward. Richards had no idea what to do defensively.
