Does Halpern have enough left in the tank to take up the defensive responsibility in the playoffs?
I trust Halpern on the 4th line and penalty kill. But giving him more than 10 or so minutes will probably kill his usefulness.
I say it without hyperbole the only two players who it would have been as bad or worse to lose
for this matchup
would have been Subban and Plekanec. And Eller has been better than Plekanec lately.
