Paul for George…
from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
After a seven-goal outburst against Columbus on March 26, the Red Wings have scored seven goals in five games. They have not scored more than two goals in any of those games.
“We haven’t scored a lot, but I also think it’s the time of year,’’ Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “I don’t think there’s going to be (a lot of scoring) when you’re playing real good teams.
“I think we perceive ourselves (as) the mighty Red Wings. I think these other teams are trying, too, and have real good players. ... So I don’t think that (lack of offense) is a big surprise to us, (or) that they’re grinding-type games. I think that’s what you need to play to get ready for the playoffs.’‘

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
