Burnside: Babcock Better Than Bowman Ever Was

Ok, ok.  No, he didn’t say that.  But, if you read between the lines he’s kind of saying it.  Ok…not even that.  But Scott Burnside is at least giving credit where it’s due. 

With Game 4 set for Thursday evening in Anaheim, the Red Wings suddenly have emerged as a team not solely reliant on special teams for success, as a team capable of adjusting and turning flaws into success. Such a dramatic turn of affairs was the direct result of Babcock’s bold lineup moves.

“We knew we were going to do that before the series started. We’ve kind of been prepared for that all playoff. If what we were doing wasn’t going to work, we were prepared, kind of scripted what we thought would work,” Babcock said.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
