Babcock steaming after loss to Coyotes: ‘That’s not good enough for us’


To nobody’s surprise, Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock was none too pleased with last night’s 4-2 home loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Also to nobody’s surprise, he’s going to do something about it.

“That’s not good enough for us. We weren’t good enough in any way,” Babcock said, per “We’ll have to look at our power play and everybody and what we’re doing. Obviously, we didn’t do a very good job as a coaching staff, because we weren’t prepared tonight.”

Detroit had four days to prepare for the Coyotes after losing to the Bruins on Saturday, yet they were still outplayed by the visitors.

“That’s two games in a row that we haven’t looked like us,” said veteran forward Daniel Cleary.

Worth noting: free-agent addition Stephen Weiss was on the ice for all four Coyotes goals. The 30-year-old has just one goal in four games, with only six registered shots.

Detroit hosts Philadelphia tomorrow.
