DETROIT — Detroit’s 3-2 win Saturday was the sixth decision by that score in the last eight games that have all been decided after regulation. The Wings have won all six, four wins have come in a shootout and the other two have been in overtime.
“We think we’re going to win, which is a real nice thing to have,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “But we can play better than we have, no question about it. So we don’t want to get into a rut playing like this, we want to play way better. We can skate better, play at a higher tempo, get more out of guys and make better decisions. In saying all that, it’s a hard league to win in. All you’ve got to do is look around. So we’re always thankful for any win. I never met a bad win.”
