The better question is has Nitty taken advantage of the playing time and is he playing himself into the #1 role? When Esche comes back is Nitty your starter?

In December with the increased playing time his save % is .932. For the season, his stats are starting to distance themselves from Esche:

Esche 3.14 GAA .890 save%
Nitty 2.76 GAA .902 save%

For your question: I say play him back to back and see what how he handles it. If he is going to be a true #1, he will need to respond to back to back games.
