With Abdelkader in the game, Babcock moved Drew Miller up to the third line with Darren Helm and Dan Cleary, pushing Patrick Eaves down to the fourth line. Abdelkader's presence on the fourth line should be interesting to watch with his tendency to hit and grind, something the Wings didn't quite do enough of in the first game.
Per Ansar Khan of mlive.com:
With Eaves on the fourth line with Draper and Abdelkader, the scoring is a bit more spread out. Miller on the third line could pay dividends for Detroit.
Do you like putting Miller on the third line over Eaves?
