No, opening it up is not all about ramping up Ovi's ice time. Its a team wide approach. Torts is still looking for Ovi to get his dmen out. Dale laughs as heads explode.

Girardi: Coach, what do we do if Ovi isn't out there?
Torts: Just play goddammit.
you think torts is upset that hunter wont put ovechkin on the ice? seriously?

@Stewie....actually girardi only played 20:35 last. in part because they were behind a lot and in part because ov not playing gave him the flexibility of throwing del zotto out there for 27 minutes trying to catch up
