To be fair, Babcock's third period game plan was piss poor.

I recognize that. However, blaming the coach for the goalie screwing up is as smart as blaming the fans or the other team.

I highly doubt Babcock told his team to stop shooting and lay off the flames. That would be just as bad as Coach Bombay telling the ducks to dive.

If you're senile it makes sense =)

An Emilio Estevez reference? Go you.

i like babs just fine, but i think it was a poor decision on his part to sit back during the third. they could have put more pressure and likely prevented this whole clusterf***.

This should be a wake up call for Babcock. No matter who's in net, if Detroit doesn't stay on offense, they'll lose.

He probably told them to sit back and don't try to force anything and don't leave yourself open to getting beat. Dump and chase and be responsible defensively. And that seems to have came back to bite them in the bum. Looking at all those goals in the third there wasn't a single time where all five Wings weren't in the defensive zone. Bad game plan.
