basically tells us that our lines were usually:
late in games, doubleshifting, when kuba was injured, etc gave rise to phillips-gonchar, but it wasnt a normal pairing. Philips-Carkner/Lee/Gilroy/Rundblad was ~16%.
Well sort of. Gonchar and Cowen were together about 54% of the time, but for the remainder, Cowen was either with Karlson (~12.5%) or Lee (~12.5%) the remaining 21% he had a mix match of 3rd pairing linemates. He had stretches where he would get demoted to that 3rd line, not because of injuries, and Phillips would be bumped up.
You don't see Phillips with Gonchar 30% of all his ice time just because of double-shifting and 9 games of injury to Kuba.
I guess my point is, Phillips really didn't have a normal pairing, he bounce between the 3rd and second pair.
