Second unit experiment

DETROIT — The Wings’ second power play unit has essentially been a revolving door this year – not that it was ever part of Mike Babcock’s plan.

“I’d don’t know if I’d call it experimenting,” Babcock said. “The people who used to play on it are all injured. It’s (Valtteri Filppula’s) group. He’s got to take charge, and make it count.”

Abdelkader, Filppula and Tomas Tatar made up the current forward line on the team’s second unit, with defensemen Ian White and Jakub Kindl manning the blue line.
