Just checked his post-game interview on RDS.ca. Someone asked him about the rookies not playing a lot in the first period and I loved his answer.

Long story short he wanted to make sure they did not have to face Ovechkin in the first period since that line could potentially be dangerous. As the game went on they got more play time and even though they did not register a point, I thought they played very well. Very happy with our handling of the rookies so far. Love that when the Habs are in advance they get 1st PP duties as well. Very good for the confidence.
