I'll wait till after the game to criticize AV on how he distributes the icetime... the team played pretty close to a perfect road game in Game 3, with that group, with Vaananen playing less than 9 mins and O'Brien just over 13... if they manage the dmen the same, with the same result - a strong consistent defensive system overall - it's hard to criticize AV on the results.

And I don't really see them being over-worked. Outside of Bieksa, no one really played minutes they weren't used to normally playing, and Bieksa probably had his best game of the playoffs...
