Red Wings coach Mike Babcock talks Wings-Preds on 97.1 FM

Prior to today’s practice at Joe Louis Arena (MLive’s Ansar Khan reports that Brendan Smith is skating with the big club today), Red Wings coach Mike Babcock spoke to 97.1 the Ticket’s Stoney and Bill about his team’s chances of rallying from a 3-1 deficit against the Nashville Predators:

ith the Red Wings down 3-1 in their series with Nashville and their proverbial backs to the wall, Mike Babcock is not panicking. He still believes in his team and his message. The Red Wings coach joined the Stoney and Bill show Thursday morning and feels his team is not dead because of the way they are playing.

“If you’re down 3-1 in a series and you feel like you’re getting outplayed and you feel they’re better than you, it’s harder to sell,” he said.

He added he does not believe the critics who say they are not getting good scoring opportunities,  saying, “We had tons of quality chances in that last game — quality, quality chances. Their goaltender made the saves.”
