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.
I don't think that's quite fair. Who were the top-4 during the 5-game winning streak, when the Pens played some of their best hockey?

The two losses to the devils had very little to do with who the top-4 D were.
