However, I'm not sure it was tactically better than holding him out.

While Divine Intervention can obviously overcome anything, still, one should make their own breaks. The Kings will be a tougher nut to crack, not to get ahead of ourselves, but from a planning standpoint, would have given him the rest.

I've been saying play Talbot one freakin game, prepared.
Everybody was no, no, no.

It wasn't Hank's fault that the team forgot to play enough D, which it reciprocated for Prince Cam; however, Hank IMO was overtired.

As that relates here to Stepan, regardless of whether or not tired, the rest would do him much good as to a heal.
Can you show me one team that benched their starter with a series lead? And not due to poor play. Talbot wasn't very good last night either.
