The Malik Report

Babcock said he was surprised at what unfolded following Friday’s season-high output in a 7-4 victory over New Jersey.
“But that’s the thing about this business,” he said. “Every time you think you got ’er going, you don’t. Just stay scared and life’s good.”
The Red Wings’ top line of David Legwand, Johan Franzen and Gustav Nyquist, which accounted for 11 points less than 48 hours earlier, had trouble getting through the neutral zone, as did everyone else in red and white. Getting clean entries also was a problem on the power play, which went 0-for-3, with three shots in 5:24.
“They trap good, but I thought we were too cute,” Nyquist said. “We tried to dangle our way through instead of chipping it in and getting on their D. Way too many turnovers.”

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.
