I don't understand why Rita isn't playing either. I am usually supportive of MacT but now I am starting to question him.
From Sportsnet West at 5:30 PDST, they mentioned that the flight from Toronto was delayed. Bishai and Rita didn't get in until early in the morning. They probably only wanted to only play one of them because of that and Bishai was chosen because he was a centre. Bishai and Rita probably only had 1 practice with the team as well.
Hope that helps.

There is no point standing in front of the net when no one can hit it... you might as well be position to pick up the rebound off the boards.
Touché. I guess what I meant was that no one was even near the net. The play just seems to take alot of time to develop. You can pass it all you want on the boards, but sooner or later someone has to go to the net for a pass or a deflection.
