When RNH & Eberle were going so well, you can't play them only 2-3 minutes in the 3rd period in a game like this. Golden chances for these guys to rack up a couple more points.
I was also surprised that after the penalties were over, they went back to rotating the 4 lines whereas RNH/Eberle had so little ice time. Renney could have easily rotate RNH/Eberle every second shift.
15 min for RNH & 17 for Eberle but Gagner & Hemsky had 19+. None of them kill penalty and RNH/Eberle played real well with 2 points each after the 2nd period already.
I am puzzled.
Agreed. At least Horcoff wasn't playing this game or would have probably played 25 minutes with all the penalties, plus his regular shifts and PP.
