This and that … Datsyuk given day off; Babcock wants 100-plus points; Cleary glad HBO gone

DETROIT — Pavel Datsyuk, Darren Helm (groin) and Johan Franzen (concussion) didn’t practice Friday.

Wings coach Mike Babcock said Datsyuk was given a “maintenance day” and should be ready to go Saturday.

– Babcock on the team’s point total goal by season’s end, “100-plus. That’s the number I’m always looking for, 100-plus, but when you do the math, multiple it by two, we’ve got 46, so we’re eight short anyway you look at it, so we need to have a big second half.”

– Daniel Cleary is happy to be done with the HBO cameras in the room. “When you’re not winning you’re not in a great mood. When things aren’t going well on the ice it just sucks having someone in your face asking you questions. You try and be as polite as you can, but it was trying of sure. They’re good guys. They were great to have around. It’s a little different, the everyday thing.”
