I only caught the last half of the 3rd against NJ and thought the 4th was Jan-Cory-Homer aka useless line. If Jan really did play on the 3rd line against NJ, why'd he get the least ice-time of anyone?
Now that I look more closely at the boxscore from New Jersey I think the combo might actually be Gus-Emmerton-Mursak. They all played more or less the same amount of shifts. With the other bottom 6 line being Homer-Abby-Miller.
Former top pick Riley Sheahan to make NHL debut today for Red Wings vs. Chicago
Riley Sheahan, the Detroit Red Wings' top pick in the 2010 entry draft out of Notre Dame, will make his NHL debut today against the Chicago Blackhawks at Joe Louis Arena (1 p.m., NBC).
The Red Wings signed Sheahan to a three-year entry level contract on Thursday. He had played seven games on an amateur tryout contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins (one goal, one assist, minus-2 rating).
"We like him because he's 6-2 (212 pounds) and it's hard to find big centericemen,'' general manager Ken Holland said. "(Coach Mike Babcock) wants to play him today just to see what he looks like. You can't have enough depth. It's only one game, but let's see what he can do.''
Sheahan, 20, will replace Jan Mursak in the lineup. Danny Cleary remains out with a sore knee but is expected to return for the playoff opener Wednesday or Thursday.
