That would've been a great opportunity to best utilize Brennan's skills, and give those other guys some rest.

Also, that last play--the slapshot off the faceoff--was tailor-made for Brennan. Instead, it was Leo.
Or Sekera on the point earlier in the game. Give Brennan a chance to play to his strengths. Eh. It's like splitting up FES late in the game or putting Dyson out there in the final minute. I know Ruff has this paternal thing with Roy, but speaking as a parent, even I know there is a time and place to sit my own son down for the good of the team. That was the spot to put Foligno out and staple the human suck machine to the bench.
