Latish night update (update)
• Sally, this Zetterberg interview is for you.
• Marty speaks. Uh oh.
• Richter speaks. Miss you!
• Jagr v. Latvia recap. “Jagr has gotten better and better with each period.” Did you catch his post-game interview with JM? I’ll try to find tomorrow and post. But in the meantime, byfuglien :) He looked liked he was not unhappy to be in KHL and avoid that chat … just a thought :)
