I'll take it a step further and say I think it was a mistake to go with a defenseman at all in the shootout. If Carbs was playing roulette with the shootout order then why not gamble on Latendresse (and not Streit)? Afterall, he has been high on him all season. Imagine Latendresse scoring the shootout winner and what that would do for his conifdence?
