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

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
