The first game, it was terrible pairing with Hamilton. I really expected the normal Rielly to show up in the last game. I can't put my finger on what it is, sure all the penalties don't help at all but he still got good minutes. Who knows...
There was 7 defenseman dressed this game too. That along with the penalties means he probably ended up playing 15-20 minutes, close to half of what he would usually play with MJ. Could be why we don't see as much, we just don't get a chance to.
