Maybe it's because we were playing Jersey. But maybe giving top 4 minutes to our top 4 defensemen has played a part in returning to our winning ways.

I think we might be building up our rookies too much around here. Let them earn trust over time. DB has gone out of his way to make a spot for Despres AND gone out of his way to rotate Bort in to get some time - they're clearly priorities. We don't need to be giving them 15 minutes a night right off the hop to bring them along.
That's driving me nuttier than the rest of it.

Despres and Bort are full of warts, and it seems that their plentiful mistakes are glossed over for every time they make a good play.
