The **** was Rome thinking? That was Matt Cooke esque.
Not close put me in th same situation and that is what I do. It was a bit late but the first thing you are tought while playing major competitive hockey is keep your head and and don't admire your pass
In my view, you should not really have to worry about where you are looking when you let the puck go that long ago and are on to your next play.
The lateness of it made it dangerous. And that was not just a little late. Hope Rome gets it good.
