Red Wings coach Mike Babcock will not tinker with his lineup for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

“The guys that got us here are getting in Game 1,” Babcock said at Metro Airport before the team flew Sunday evening to California.

But Babcock said he told the players who sat out Saturday night’s regular-season finale at Dallas to stay ready. The seventh-seeded Wings will play the second-seeded Anaheim Ducks in the playoffs, their 22nd straight postseason berth.

General manager Ken Holland said forwards Todd Bertuzzi and Mikael Samuelsson, injured most of the season, were healthy scratches against the Stars. Forward Darren Helm, who hasn’t played since Jan. 25 due to a back injury, also accompanied the team to Anaheim.

PRIMED FOR PLAYOFFS: Babcock said his team made “drastic improvement” over the past two months of the season.

“I really thought that March was a tough one, just because we played on the road so much and traveled so far,” Babcock said. “I thought we battled through that and obviously finished strong. We’re confident in our group and excited to get started.”

He also discussed the coveted playoff berth: “I hear lots of things, ‘Oh, they’re the Red Wings; they’ll just get in.’ Well, that’s crazy. We wear the same uniform, but we’re way different than we’ve been. But I think of all the years I’ve been here, it’s by far the biggest growth we’ve had in one year in a team by miles. I like where we’re at. We’re in a good situation.”
