"We were at a critical stage in the hockey game," said Hitchcock. "Derian (Hatcher) had a beat on those guys. They weren’t going around his area very quickly. We needed to get that kill. We needed to get it for sure." So, the timeout was specifically called to get Hatcher some rest after a long shift and to get right back out there to kill some more? "Yes," said the coach.
