Do you start Emery tomorrow?

You have your playoff starter set, Crawford.

Do you give Emery a game in Nashville and let him play Sunday? It's a game you can afford to lose (almost want to) and Minnesota should be a win at home which will allow CC to keep his confidence up. Whereas a drubbing in Nashville against Crow could raise questions among the fanbase once again on whether Crawford should be the playoff starter. Q can avoid some unneeded pressure by avoiding this route. And if you start Emery, you avoid him going over 2 weeks without getting into a game going into the playoffs, provided he isn't on the schedule for any of the last 3 (if 6th is wrapped up, you almost expect him to play in Detroit in the last game.)

However, you only have 2 more games after this, meaning he'll only be playing 3 games in either 11 or 12 days, depending on when they start the playoffs. Do you play him and hope he stays hot?
