Babcock Keeps The Wings In The Race

from Cassie Campbell of CBC,

Mike Babcock has to be a candidate for coach of the year!

I know his team, the Detroit Red Wings, is full of talent and is expected to be vying for a Stanley Cup every year, but right now they’re in ninth spot, out of the playoffs in the Western Conference.
