Stuck in Pittsburgh

Coach Mike Babcock said at his Friday press conference that the Red Wings wanted to take advantage of two off days between Games 3 and 4 by flying back to Detroit as soon as Game 3 was finished. That, however, was nixed by the league.

"They never asked me about the schedule," said Babcock. "Obviously they felt it was the best way for TV, and so that's what we do. We tried to fly home. We wanted to go home after the game. But this is our opportunity to sell the game and the NHL. I think we're all in it together that way, you people in the media, the players, the management, the better job we can do and the more people we draw attention to our game, the better it is for us. So this is one of the things we had to do. We just found a way to do something else while we were doing it."
