Norway is more or less forced to play their best d-men that much, because of the lack of depth beyond the two first d-pairs.
They might rotate all three pairs more in less important matches (the 3 top teams) but against the teams they have to beat for QF (Slovenia, Denmark, Belarus, Switzerland) they have to go for the best on the ice most of the time.
But they have had success the last couple of years, so Tollefsen and HolÝs are used to it!
