The Wings had an off day yesterday and will practice today as they prepare for a road game against the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Only five points separated nine teams before Monday’s games.
“We got to win another game; we need points badly,” Babcock said. “We’ll get a bit of a rest and get ready to compete hard.
“Bottom line is we just got to keep plugging, getting better. I wouldn’t bet against us.”...
“Goaltending has been really good on the road; that’s been a huge plus for us,” Babcock said. “We’re a team, with the way we score and the people we have out of the lineup, we need goaltending. You get past two (goals against), we’re in trouble.”...
Babcock also likes how some of the recent call-ups from the Grand Rapids Griffins are playing.
“The guys we called up play hard,” Babcock said. “Riley Sheahan, I thought, was great. (Luke) Glendening plays hard every night. (Tomas) Jurco when he was up played real well. So to me we’ve gotten a lot of good (play) from Grand Rapids.”

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.
