The Freep's Helene St. James reports from practice today:
Datsyuk says he's playing against Sharks— Helene St. James (@freepwings) March 16, 2012
St. James also told the twitter story that Datsyuk started practicing between Franzen and Bertuzzi, but that Mule left the ice a little early with back spasms. She also noted that Babcock played with a Cleary-Helm-miller line and that he had the original Monty Babcock's Flying Circus forward trio (Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Holmstrom) doing power play drills.
Babcock: The emphasis on our team every day is to work hard and play with good structure. We haven't done that lately.
Babcock: We've just got to keep plugging away and working hard. Having Pavel will help. (On the power play)
We'll see what all the results of the planning and practice have produced late tomorrow night. Hopefully the Wings can take advantage of the favors done them last night in Carolina and San Jose.
