Lucky tie pays off for Babcock

Mike Babcock, head coach of the Detroit Red Wings, reached into his bag of tricks and donned a necktie from McGill University to see if his alma mater really does matter.

Babcock requested the old school tie from a McGill official via a text message sent earlier in the week and confirmed he would be wearing the red, silk tie in Game 2 of the series, Saturday.

Babcock ... was a two-time all-star rearguard at McGill from 1983-84 to 1986-87, where he also served as team captain and won the Bobby Bell trophy as team MVP.
