“That’s a different time and different era and different players, different teams, different depth in the league,” Babcock said. “Now there’s a whole bunch of good teams, not a couple in each side. It’s way different even than seven years ago, when I came here. It’s night-and-day different than when I arrived in the league 10 years ago. Things have changed. I don’t know how you compare that.
“Any time you can win 20 games in a row, you’ve done something. That’s just the facts. My first year here, I don’t know how many games we won, we never did it. Scotty (Bowman’s) team here won 62 games, they never did it. So obviously, it’s very difficult to do, and we feel fortunate that we’ve done it, because we needed the points.”
-Mike Babcock, head coach of the Detroit Red Wings on some people questioning the Wings’ 20 game home winning streak. More from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.
