Wings to shuffle lines
By Victoria Matiash
The head coach of the Detroit Red Wings is splitting up his top two forwards once again.
According to Ansar Khan of MLive.com, Mike Babcock will likely play Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg on separate lines in Friday's tilt with the Minnesota Wild. Up until late in Monday's contest with the Dallas Stars, Datsyuk and Zetterberg had been playing on a line with Damien Brunner.
No guarantees, but Zetterberg is expected to skate with Brunner and Johan Franzen, while Datsyuk could join Todd Bertuzzi and Valtteri Filppula (if healthy).
