Quote of the day … Mike Babcock

DETROIT — Wings coach Mike Babcock on whether or not there should have been a penalty on Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson after hitting Johan Franzan into the boards from behind early in the third period of Game 2.

“It should have been a two-minute penalty,” Babcock said. “This is the way I look at it. Those referees are trying to get to the Stanley Cup final like the rest of us and it’s fast. When I watch the replay and see it, it’s a penalty. They don’t get to watch the replay.”

With Franzen down in the corner, Duncan Keith lofted a pass out to Patrick Kane, who got behind the Wings’ defense and beat Jimmy Howard between the pads just 4:32 in.
