The Red Wings lost forward Drew Miller when he sustained two deep lacerations around his right eye in the first period of a 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday. Miller did practice on Wednesday, wearing a plastic guard below his visor and is questionable. Detroit was also without forwards Pavel Datsyuk, Riley Sheahan, and Erik Cole; a decision on all three will be made after the morning skate Thursday.
Sheahan has missed three straight games and Datsyuk had played the past two after missing the previous five with a lower-body injury. The Red Wings are in third place in the Atlantic Division, two points ahead of the Bruins. Petr Mrazek is expected to start for Detroit.
