Watch Coach Babcock complain about last night’s “non-calls” below. At one point he says a penalty should have been called on the clean hit by Jake Muzzin on Dan Cleary. Not sure if he thinks the rules don’t apply to the Red Wings or what. Last I checked, they were in the NHL too where checking is allowed.
Here’s the Muzzin hit on Cleary
A tame Zetterberg gives his take on the game last night.
THE VIEW FROM DETROIT RAGS
Editor’s Note: Wings D-man Brendan Smith, on the other hand, had a legitimate complaint. He was run over by Penner on what should have been an interference call. The hit didn’t look too bad but not only was he caught off guard, he was just back after being out with a right shoulder injury… yes, the same shoulder Penner slammed into. Did Penz know? Hmmm… For more on this, here’s the full story…

The Wings couldn’t have had a much stronger start: They practically owned the puck, batting it around L.A.’s zone with such efficiency.Bernier had seen 10 shots by the midway point of the first period. One of those beat him: Quincey’s shot – and it’s generous to call it a shot – went in off Bernier’s mask as Voynov tried to out-stick Jordin Tootoo for the puck.
The Detroit News
For two periods the Red Wings were the better team Wednesday. But it was a costly third period that did the Wings in again. Goals by forwards Carter (power play) and Kopitar rallied Los Angeles to a 2-1 victory over the Red Wings.
