from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,
"Well, obviously, we've got to win a game," Mike Babcock said. "I mean, that's where we're at. That's what we'll think about for the rest of the day off, and tomorrow we'll get back at it.
"We've got to bounce back."
Asked about scoring, especially timely scoring, which has lagged in the series and, at times, throughout this season of transition for the Red Wings, Babcock talked about math.
"Well, I just think we've got to score one more than the other team," he said, the day after watching his club hit about three goalposts, amid some other close scoring opportunities.
"Whether it's Pavs (Pavel Datsyuk) or Mule (Johan Franzen) we've just got to have one more than the other team."
Henrik Zetterberg does not have a goal through five games, although he has authored some fine playmaking on a line with Datsyuk and Justin Abdelkader.
Abdelkader returns to the lineup Friday after a two-game suspension for a high body-check that contacted the head of the Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman.

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.
