Wings coach Mike Babcock on David Legwand’s butt-ending penalty

DETROIT >> Wings coach Mike Babcock on the five-minute major for butt-ending Evgeni Malkin and game misconduct assessed to David Legwand late in the third period with the game tied 4-4 with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“He took the penalty,” Babcock said. “The referee made the call. When it happened, to be honest with you, I thought because they had been all over him, I thought that it was weak. But when I watched it on video, he just made the call.”

Legwand drew the penalty after Malkin raked his stick over the back of Legwand’s head to the left of Jimmy Howard.
