DETROIT — With just a week to get a team ready for the season opener, Wings coach Mike Babcock felt it was necessary to get his team in a regular-season routine.
“We’re trying to skate as much as we possibly can and go through the details of our play,” Babcock said. “Basically, I have a lesson and I keep crossing off the details and I expect the guys to absorb it and pay attention to it and the bottom line is you have a way better chance to look good if you all know what’s going on.”
On Tuesday, the Wings had a morning skate before scrimmaging at Compuware Arena. They also had a morning skate Thursday before returning for a practice later in the evening.
“I’m trying to get their body clock on,” Babcock said.
