Monitoring minutes

Following up on the theme of possible team fatigue, and following up on Terry Murray’s comments yesterday about getting more minutes for his third and fourth line, here’s how the minutes played out today. I have listed each player’s average ice time, entering today, followed by how much they played today. It’s skewed in a couple places, obviously, because Harrold played defense and Purcell played on the second line, but it’s a fairly good representation.

The talk had been about balancing the minutes for forwards, but it seems as though the defensemen got even more of the balance Saturday…
