Babcock said there might be changes made to the lineup, including the forwards. "There might be," said Babcock. "I'm going to sleep on that one more night."

The Red Wings will likely go back to pairing Brian Rafalski and Nicklas Lidstrom on the blue line and Niklas Kronwall with Brad Stuart after juggling those pairings in Game 4. Babcock said that he split Rafalski and Lidstrom on the road. He wanted a puck-moving defenseman -- Rafalski -- to play when Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg were on the ice and a stopper -- Lidstrom -- on the ice whenever Nashville's top line of Jason Arnott, Martin Erat and Alexander Radulov were on the ice.
