If it ain't broke, don't fix it

That's the motto for Mike Babcock of late as he will roll out the same lines tonight that he has the past couple of games. And why would you change anything with the success the Wings have had of late? 

Per Khan:

Franzen-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Cleary-Zetterberg-Filppula
Bertuzzi-Miller-Williams
Draper-Helm-Eaves

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Lebda-Lilja

Howard

Jimmy Howard gets the start for Detroit, 16th consecutive game for the rookie. Lebda has provided a solid pairing with Andreas Lilja and that puts Jonathan Ericsson out of the line-up.  All four lines have found a way to click in way or the other so Babcock is keeping them together.
