Forward lines shuffled

Jiri Hudler will be on the second line tonight where he played most of Game 5. Mikael Samuelsson is on the third line with Kirk Maltby down on the fourth.

"I thought Draper and Dallas Drake did a good job on the forecheck, turning pucks over," said coach Mike Babcock. "With Maltby on that line, he's not as dangerous as Sammy. So that's why I've done that. And that gives my other group (fourth line) two good skaters (Helm and Maltby). On the road, matchups aren't as easy to get ... I want to have four groups at 40 seconds apiece, not six groups at 60 seconds apiece."
