I haven't gone through the GDT either, but I did notice that he didn't play in the third. I took a look at the tape, and his last shift was the play where Doughty got elbowed by Voracek. Purcell had a chance to clear the puck out of the Kings' zone on that play, and failed to do so. The point man intercepted his weak clearing attempt, threw it behind the net, and moments later Doughty got elbowed. I speculate that the coaches were sending him a message about his weak board play.
Too bad, because I thought he'd played a strong game up to that point. Aside from the 2 penalties, I thought Parse played a strong game, too. It'll be interesting to see if he can maintain this level of intensity.
