Rielly isnt the 7th dman though, its been Murphy pretty much the whole way through and for good reason.

On the back end I would say Ouellet was just as good or better then Rielly today, yes I'm biased but Ouellet made a sick pass to Rattie for one goal, and then made the play for Scheifele to score as well. All while being one of the go to defensive guys.

I think the real x factor was Scheifele all game
I think Ouellet has been just awesome. Looks like another good pick for the Wings.

But as for the bolded part - I wish they kept track of ice time because I'd say Murphy is getting more minutes than Rielly and Rielly is the 7th dman/PP specialist.
