Wings vs. Wild


Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock continues to shuffle line combinatio­ns and powerplay units, looking to spark certain players.

The Wings, winners of four in a row, will host the Minnesota Wild tonight (7:30 p.m., FSN).

“Sometimes just changing things gets guys going,’’ Babcock said. “Other times they just dig in. Sometimes they get mad at you. It doesn’t matter to me, I just want to win."

Babcock said he’s definitely keeping Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg on separate power-play units.

“All I know for sure is that 13 and 40 aren’t on the power play together. Because it isn’t working that way,’’ Babcock said.
