Babcock evaluates Red Wings' chances vs. Bruins

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock was a guest on NHL Live to look back on the regular season and ahead to the Red Wings' series against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Babcock also provided updates on veteran forwards Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. Datsyuk played in Detroit's final six games after missing time with a knee injury. Zetterberg, who had back surgery and has not played since Feb. 8, is hoping to return for the second round of the playoffs, if not sooner.

"Pavs got better each and every game," Babcock said. "We're optimistic that he can continue to do that. We don't know if he doesn't need surgery and to get [the knee] fixed permanently, we'll know at the end of the season, but he seems to be feeling better. He practiced good, we grounded out [Tuesday] for a long time, and he managed to stay with it and get through it.

"It's an exciting time of year and why you play the game," Neal said.

"Everything changes when you get into the playoffs," Neal said. "It's going to be a fun series. They're a hard-working team, well-coached, great goaltending, so once you get in the playoffs it's a different story and we're excited to get going.
