On the Beat: Wings lines and reaction from Dave Tippett
What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:
Stanley Cup Final
- Penguins fans are calling this “The Shift 2,” courtesy of Brooks Orpik. The Penguins’ entire defense corps really is underrated.
- Here are the lines from the Wings’ last practice of the season. Datsyuk still with Zetterberg.
- Mike Heika has Dave Tippett’s reaction to his dismissal. I don’t think Tippett will be out of a job for long.
- Heika also provides us with Marc Crawford’s career coaching record. Not being saddled with Sakic and Forsberg down the middle sure makes life more difficult doesn’t it?
- The Sabres are expected to put forward a statement regarding the Coyotes situation once a decision in court has been made. They can’t be in favor of such a move, and who can blame them? Obviously they will want a lot of money to allow for the move to happen.
