This looked like a punishment based on Roussel's last NHL game, but it obviously wasn't. This was a perfect time for Reilly Smith to get in a couple games playing top line minutes at ES, on the PP, and on the PK. What a waste ..... Even Oleksiak could have benefited from playing more minutes in every situation.
Rousell only played about 5 minutes in his last game. Oleksiak and Smith might benefit more from the rest and practice with the team than playing in Texas for 2 days, then traveling.
