Keep in mind our first ever playoff win in Detroit had Ellis in the lineup.
In this situation, I would go with Hillen. He has 2 games in this series under his belt. He, like Ellis has only played in about 8 minutes per game, but unlike Ellis, they have all been at even strength or PK and has looked more solid defensively. I think we need Hillen's EV minutes and defense over the promise of Ellis' PP offense (which created 3 turnovers on the PP in the first game).

Babcock is really pissed about all of Detroit's penalties the first 3 games and they will try to stay out of the box, so the Ellis PP advantage will be further reduced.
