On the PP we actually worked the puck around a little more and had more movement away from the puck too leading to Arnott's goal. Not just sitting there, standing on X's waiting for Shea to get open to bomb away...

I don't really think it'll hurt so much until the third period when guys are going to be exceeding their normal ice time loads. Hamhuis is actually a better skater than Weber and paired against the Sedins all night, it might not be that bad of a tradeoff...
