They didn't say a word about it on RDS, blaming some other player. I guess they are already "protecting" Latendresse this year! I have nothing against Latendresse, but I just think he could have easily avoided the first goal by Buffalo on this sequence.
I'm not sure if it was already posted but I think that line had been on for a while and they were tired. A.Markov had the puck in the corner and mildly shot it up the boards and the puck stayed in and then 10 seconds later it was in the net. So even though Lats might be partly to blame, I think that was where it all started.
Having said that, Lats did look slow out there but it might just be compared to Buffalo.
