For the first chunk of the first period it was all St. Louis. The Wings were just watching the play... couldn't pass, hit, or anything. Then During one of the commercial breaks, Mike Babcock had the team huddle together and they had a quick team meeting. Whatever he said at that time worked, because shortly after Stuart had his fantastic hit, and that turned the game around. In my opinion, it was whatever babcock said to the team that changed the game- - not the refs. Speaking of Mike Babcock, I just want to say what an awesome person he is. Yesterday the team I coach got to play at Joe Louis Arena at 4pm, and before the boys went on the ice, we were all welecomed by a visit from Mike Babcock- - the kids were THRILLED. He came in there, joked around with them, talked a bit and wished everyone good luck. Little things like that make a huge difference for kids, and it goes to show not only is Babs the best coach in the league, but he is an awesome person as well. That's why I think his words on that tv timeout was the difference maker.
