Too much short handed time.
Maybe, but De Brusk has 17 shifts, none shorthanded (some PP time but I don't think it's the whole difference). And Cassidy has used Bjork on the PK at times.

I suppose the extra for De Brusk might be some ad hoc even strength shifts to cover for tired killers.

DeBrusk plays on the PP. Bjork typically doesn’t. It was a special teams game. He’ll play plenty tomorrow night.

Lauzon got a ton of PK time. Not sure the offensive will ever be there but he has the look of a dependable 5/6 defense first guy.

One final thought: with Lauzon and UV looking to be at least NHL-viable already, and Kevan Miller hopefully on the mend (for real this time), the B's have an absolute embarrassment of riches on defense.

DeBrusk got some extra shifts when Marchand was in the box for fighting

I know it’d be hard to convince him to do it, but there are a lot of reasons Chara should be playing 40-60 (regular season) games a season.

Really impressed by the physicality from the defense last night. Angry Carlo is my favorite Carlo. I thought Krejci and Coyle were monsters all game as well. I know the time off makes everyone a little fresher, but those guys looked ready to go. Fantastic win under tough conditions.
