I'm on the same page with most of you, but let me bring this up:
I was thinking the same thing regarding our lack of physical play. It was absent until the 3rd period. It baffled me that Trotz kept Tootoo/Upshall/Mckenzie on the bench most of the night.
Then, in his post-game press conference, he said (paraphrase) " We were controlling the play in the first 2 periods, and were matching up well with them. When we went down 3-2 I started using Upshall's group more, they gave us a spark"
That's what I don't understand. Trotz has been preaching about setting the tone..being pro-active, instead of reactive...but yet he makes them do that.
This is really the first time I have thought that Trotz judgement was poor.
