Hitch had some interesting postgame quotes about his D. He said he's not going to put Oleksiak on the right side any more. That means Honka's spot in the lineup is secure -- same with Johns. Instead, Oleksiak will only play if one of the left-handers sits.

Hitch also said the six we saw last night are going to be his six starters going forward.

Looks like Oleksiak is going to have to wait for an injury to give him a shot.

So... five back-to-back wins over an 82 game season? Sounds about right.

I'm okay with that. Not that Oleksiak is that bad. But, Honka has way more upside and I want to see him really develop.

Oleksiak should be in over Hamhuis, not Honka.

That's probably true.
