Lee, I think you've hit this perfectly. Those are tired penalties. Second game of a back to back. We were in a deep hole before the 2nd period started.

I also think Hitch is quite concerned about the 2 rookies in a defensive way, and playing them with Chimmer was his way of using that line with discretion. Now that he's seen good games from each of them I hope he'll split them and move them up to clear top 6 roles.

Should be interesting to see what his thoughts are about them after reviewing the tape of the 1st two games.
