I meant Trotz was looking for offense more than defense for the first time.
I think someone said that Geoffrion had the best faceoff % of the night, with Smithson and Leggy not doing that great. We're up 3-2 with 3 seconds left, he puts in his most reliable center instead of a guy who's only played in 16 games. It was the right call.
