Euro Twins together or apart?
"Whatever leads you to winning is the best way," said Babcock. "So if you're on a roll and they're playing together, then that's great. If it's not and they're shutting you down because you've got one unit, that's not as good. We'd like them not to play together, but I like winning."
Other practice notes ...
-- The Red Wings skated at City Arena because Joe Louis Arena was being used by the WWE set-up crew for a Tuesday night wrestling event.
-- Kris Draper got Henrik Zetterberg with a shaving cream pie in the face as the Swede entered the Joe Louis Arena locker room after practice. Tuesday was Zetterberg's 27th birthday and Draper is notorious for getting his teammates on their birthdays.
-- The Wings spent a lot of time practicing dump-ins and forechecks.
