Huskins joins the Ducks' top four
Q. How will you rotate minutes? Will you try to put one of those other three into the top four or try to divide the minutes equally somehow?The dropoff in depth on Anaheim's defence is immense, and it's going to be quite a test for the likes of Kent Huskins, a 28-year-old journeyman who played his first 33 NHL games with the Ducks this season.
COACH RANDY CARLYLE: Well, obviously, the minutes will have to be shared. I would suspect that we'll rotate people through. With the situation we're presented with, we'll play Niedermayer, Beauchemin, O'Donnell, Huskins. What we'll try to do is find minutes for Jackman or Rome and DiPenta.
He averaged just 14 minutes per game in the regular season and under 12 so far against the Red Wings, but is actually +2 in this series.
My guess is the 'new' big three play unreal minutes tonight.
