Staal, Girardi and McDonagh are all legit shut down guys who can eat up minutes.

Have to ask Torts why he dresses Bickel instead of Eminger. Bickel has not been getting much ice time throughout the playoffs so I don't see last night's ice time as a big issue.

Here are his times on ice:

Ottawa
1. 6.42
2. 3.40
3. 9.18
4. 3.33
5. 4.59
6. 1.59
7. 3.46

Washington
1. 5.31
2. 3.07
3. 3.24

Torts obviously thinks he can lean on guys like Staal, Girardi, McDonagh and Del Zotto--going to play them a lot. Staal and McD had more minutes last night than Bickel has accumulated the entire playoffs playing every game.
