In general, I hate the approach of trying not to lose. Try to win. If you're up by one, do you need to play Ovie every other shift? No. But roll all four lines. Play him a regular shift. Try to go for the throat and get an insurance goal.

I mean, his defensive issues were never a problem in the playoffs before--because the defense backed off of him at the first sign of a possible breakout, so as not to be beaten. Get him rolling offensively again, and that starts to happen. It's just as effective at limiting the other team's offensive cycle as playing a checking line absurd minutes.
