Rafalski Back Tonight – Miller Sits

Our boy Rafalski will be back tonight:

Defenseman Brian Rafalski practiced with the team during the trip and said his status for Monday likely would be determined after the morning skate.

This should be good news for the powerplay and for team defense, as Kindl has been somewhat iffy at best.  Though lately, he has been better,  no question about that.

In other news, Miller will be sitting tonight as Babcock noted that the Wings really missed Eaves on the PK against the Canucks.  Heres the lines:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Bertuzzi
Abdelkader-Modano-Cleary
Hudler-Helm-Eaves

Rafalski-Ericsson
Lidstrom-Stuart
Kronwall-Salei

Here’s hoping for a little more from lines 2 & 4 tonight.  All Hudler needs is that one goal to get things going.
