Detroit Red Wings
Todd McLellan is out after seven years as coach of the San Jose Sharks.
Babcock suggested grit, not talent, will take the Red Wings further in the playoffs.
“I mean I just watched the guys play, and I just thought that Mrazek would give us the best way to start the series.”
Seven players made donations based on personal statistics achieved over the course of the season, generating a total donation of $24,975 to seven Metro Detroit-based nonprofits.
I’m pretty sure that’s a cheep shot from the Lightning’s Ryan Callahan on the Red Wings’ Darren Helm.
Steve Yzerman concedes it feels odd to be facing the Detroit Red Wings in the opening round of the playoffs.
“It’s not going to be easy,” Detroit forward Darren Helm said of the upcoming series against Tampa Bay, “but that’s the fun part of it.”
If Tampa is so great why are they blocking non-Florida residents from coming to their games? Are they scared?

Mike Babcock is in the final year of his contract, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk aren’t getting any younger — and Detroit has not advanced past the second round of the playoffs since 2009.
