Many, if not most, NHL coaches shorten their bench in the 3rd period of a game where their team is behind by one goal. Heck, some coaches will only play their best 4 defensemen in that situation. Having two rookies on the blueline--and expecting to make the playoffs--makes this practice extremely likely.
