Yeah, he's been very good in both directions. In fact, that whole line has been outstanding defensively when you consider Semin has been just about perfect and Staal has been a monster on the forecheck. Factor in Muller's preference for using them on o-zone faceoffs and the fact that wingers are usually behind the rush anyway, and Tlusty really hasn't had a lot of chances to get burnt.
