Miller in for Bertuzzi for Red Wings

CHICAGO -- Drew Miller will return to the lineup for the Detroit Red Wings in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday at United Center (1 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, RDS).

Miller has not played since April 20 against the Vancouver Canucks because of a broken finger. He had four goals and eight points in 44 games for the Red Wings this season.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock has tinkered with his fourth line on several occasions in this postseason. Patrick Eaves and Cory Emmerton each has sat once, but the third spot has been a bit of a rotation. Todd Bertuzzi, who has no points in the postseason, will sit for the third time.

Here are the projected lineups for the Blackhawks and Red Wings:

BLACKHAWKS

Brandon Saad - Jonathan Toews - Marian Hossa

Patrick Sharp - Michal Handzus - Patrick Kane

Bryan Bickell - Dave Bolland - Andrew Shaw

Daniel Carcillo - Marcus Kruger - Michael Frolik

Duncan Keith - Niklas Hjalmarsson

Nick Leddy - Brent Seabrook

Johnny Oduya - Michal Rozsival

Corey Crawford

Ray Emery

Scratched: Viktor Stalberg, Jamal Mayers, Sheldon Brookbank, Ben Smith, Ryan Stanton

RED WINGS

Johan Franzen - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader

Valtteri Filppula - Henrik Zetterberg - Daniel Cleary

Gustav Nyquist - Joakim Andersson - Damien Brunner

Patrick Eaves - Cory Emmerton - Drew Miller

Niklas Kronwall - Jonathan Ericsson

Kyle Quincey - Brendan Smith

Carlo Colaiacovo - Jakub Kindl

Jimmy Howard

Jonas Gustavsson

Scratched: Todd Bertuzzi, Jordin Tootoo, Tom McCollum, Ian White

Injured: Mikael Samuelsson (upper body)
