The reason Stoll had so much ice time, was because he was on the ice for a TON of defensive zone faceoffs, then immediately changed.
He also played a ton otherwise. 8 minutes more than Lewis. That is ridiculous.
I still have a hard tome understanding how considering the Kings were ahead most of the game that Lewis only gets 11 minutes of icetime. Once again poor coaching by TM and his obsession with leaning on veteran players.
If TM really feels that Handzus and Stoll are better options when protecting a lead then he should be removed as coach of this team because he is officially off his rocker.
Handzus is a former Selke candidate, I realize that. But that was years ago and before an ACL surgery. His speed prevents him from being much of a shutdown player. Stoll is just bad defensively for many different reasons.
