Wings coach Mike Babcock about returning to Anaheim where he began his NHL head coaching career.
“I lived here, I like coming here. It’s a nice rink, it’s warm. 4 1/2 hours to come here (from Detroit). I talked to (former assistant) Paul MacLean yesterday – how far is Ottawa from Montreal – I think they can actually take the city bus. It’s a big difference. That’s the biggest negative in coming. The biggest plus is it’s beautiful out there and we like coming and we have lots of fun when we’re here.”
