Look at how ineffective Doan has been at even strength. This line is taking on the Doan line and leaving Datsyuk to have free reign on the yotes.
There is no denying Abby wasn't on his best this game. He made some good decisions but he also didnt manage the puck right way quite a few times.

That's not what you expect out of your 2nd line centre. If I remember correctly, Flip replaced Abby for quite a bit later in games. IMO, the best player on that line last night was Cleary without shadow of doubt.

I'm not saying he's been a total failure though just in case some of you only think in terms of black and white.

Like Babcock mentioned, the game isn't slow enough for him yet it seems. Though he tries hard which I really like.
