It's really rare for Tortorella to give any significant minutes to his third pairing. Unless the game is comfortably in hand, he'll give about 80% of the minutes to the top four. Moore is currently stuck behind McDonagh, Girardi, Del Zotto and Stralman, so unless he really wows Torts he'll probably continue to get eight or nine minutes per.

What will be telling about Torts' view of Moore is when (if?) Staal comes back. Does he bump Eminger and continue to play Moore? Does he do his normal "scratch one of the bottom pair guys seemingly at random" thing? It will be interesting.
