He sat out Friday's practice, but was obviously thought to be ready to go tonight. Unfortunately at, before, or after the morning skate he was either ruled or he ruled himself out and it was too late to recall a defenseman from Milwaukee since they are currently out in Abbottsford...
Just a bad gamble that lead to an overworked D tonight
Then they should've had a 7th defenseman on the roster. The fact that we only had 6 guys on the roster to begin with is ridiculous. Say someone went down in warmups or couldn't go, you have to have a backup plan. What if one of the 5 we dressed last night got hurt, then we're running 4 guys out there? You can't do that in this league. Couple that with Klasen getting minimal minutes and we virtually playing 16 against 18 last night. I can let certain things go easily but poor roster management isn't one of them.
