Why wouldn't they put out all their big guns on the PP, I don't see Brouwer as someone that should be in that role... is it just me?
he didnt do much yesterday but his role is not really to be seen. he screens the goalie on the PP and retrieves pucks for ovechkin while bringing energy and physicality. for reference he was top 5 in hits last year, and is currently tied for 3rd in the league in hits. the guy hes tied with (Morrow) has played 2 extra games, and the 2 guys above him have played 1 and 2 extra games respectively.
as long as brouwer dials it up a notch in the playoffs, which im sure he will, he'll be a valuable piece of the puzzle.
