They need to keep Abdelkader in the lineup. He's doing all the little things well, he brings size and energy, he's over 61% on faceoffs (best on the team), and they can play him anywhere on any line. I don't know how they even consider sitting him.
Eaves is probably safe after his game 4 but you never know what Babcock will do. Hudler has three points in four games and is playing pretty well, so you'd think he'd be safe. Draper had a solid series but was 4 for 15 on faceoffs in game 4 and under 44% for the series.
Modano came back with a point and did some good things early but was generally ineffective.
Smart money says Miller sits for game 1, but I'd sit Modano back down. Or Draper maybe - either one would sit before Miller. But that's me.
