Including two games he didn't finish due to injury (3/26 vs. Tampa and 3/19 vs. Montreal), he was clearly laboring in ToI from the Sens game on 3/16. Removing those games under Rolston from when he first left with an injury:
  • 20 games, 18:24 ToI (his average for the entire season), 8 goals, 8 assists, 16 points

He was pretty clearly laboring with injury at times throughout mid-March from the 16th on until he shut it down to heal.
