(2) Also means Maatta will continue to play (he would have been rotated out occasionally to get Borts a game here and there).
(3) Niskanen will move back up into the top 4, where the added minutes will help him keep up his hot start to the season.
If all 3 continue to play exceptionally well, could mean the end of the line for Orpik or a nice return for Niskanen when Scuds gets back.
Silver linings, like the inside of the stanley cup!!! Totally agree, Borts was playing really well, hate to see him sit, bring some toughness back into the lineup, maybe that will "inspire" the team a little more.
