Detroit still dangerous without Zetterberg
Coyotes coach Dave Tippett was asked on Wednesday how the Red Wings not having star forward Henrik Zetterberg (lower body) for Game 1 changes the approach to defending Detroit -- if at all.

He pointed to the Red Wings' scoring depth -- seven players other than Zetterberg with more than 15 goals scored -- and said the 'Yotes can't relax just because one star is missing.

"They have some pretty good players even though Zetterberg's out," Tippett said. "If we think we're going to have it any easier, we're wrong. Zetterberg is an excellent player. That goes without saying. But they have good depth on their club. They're still a very good team."
Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
