I think it's enough of a bump to be more than just a couple deep OT games. He's averaged 25:28 in the playoffs over the course of his career, which is about 3 minutes higher than his regular season average. In his 7 playoff seasons, his lowest per-game average was 24:16 per game in 2004. In 2010 he was at almost 27 minutes a night for the Flyers' run to the finals, and he led the team in both PP and PK iceteam.
