So the old guy we got for the playoff run is a healthy scratch tonight. He’s taking it pretty well though:
“It’s tough,” he said. “I just need to continue to do what I’m doing and you wait for the call, and then hopefully you take advantage of it.”
“I totally understand it,” Modano said. “It’s up to me if I get the opportunity to just give him a reason not to take me back out.”
I’m not sure what I think about it right now, but I won’t be questioning Babcock yet. We’ll see how the night goes. Here’s the lineup for game one.
Let’s go Wings!
