This is the only reason as I can see it. Since they only have one defenceman out there, they may be too afraid to put Strålman out there as the sole defenceman.

But OTOH they have no issues with putting MDZ as the sole D on the 2nd PP unit, and he is an even bigger liability than Strålman.

But if they want to shore it up defensively, wouldn't it make sense to put McD or Moore out there who has the best recovery speed? McD who by the way is our best offensive D 5v5.
