To me itīs plain stupid to call up Zuccarello just to bench him, and wait for a shootout. It would have been better for him to play in Hartford with about 20 mins ice time, producing points and building confidence.
I choose to believe that Torts sees him as a replacement for Callahan, and gives him plenty of minutes. Let him also play 4 on 4 in OT if it goes there.
Christensen does the same thing, doesn't seem to be a problem.
Can't believe we're using the "He was on the bench all game" excuse for not succeeding in a shootout.
