DETROIT — Wings coach Mike Babcock on the travel his squad has to do in the Western Conference playoffs.
“As each series goes and flights go on and you have to travel a long way,” Babcock said. “I talked to (Ottawa Senators coach) Paul MacLean and I don’t know how they got to Montreal, but it takes like two seconds to get there. We go back and forth. This is a marathon of hope here. It could wear you down.”
