Hank clearly set up Bert's second goal in the third period. Yet he isn't being credited for it in the boxscore. Anyone know if this will be reviewed again by the official scorers? Or is it a done deal?

He sure looked like a different player on a line with Franzen and Bert. I knew that his linemates were part of the problem.

Yeah, that should be fixed. But more importantly, he sure as hell looked rejuvenated in that third period. I think Z should stay with Mule and Bert for a while. Unlike Filppula and Hudler, they create a lot of space out there for him with their size alone.

Hopefully Datsyuk doesn't start slumping for a few games though. Because you know if that happens people are gonna be suggesting we trade him too. <_<

But really, it's surprising how well we've done this season with only one of the two Eurotwins performing at their normal levels. Imagine if BOTH Z and Pavel are firing on all cylinders from here on out!

What a game he had today, that was so good to see. Hopefully these lines stay the same from here on out. And I don't think there giving him the assist on the last Bert goal which is total crap..

if they don´t correct it on their own, the detroit media should make them aware of their mistake. it was so obvious that hank has to get that primary assist....how they recognized white touched the puck but leave hank out of the scoreboard is beyond me. there are guys that get paid for keeping track of the stats and nothing else and they don´t get their job done.

I don't know how they miss an assist, but did anyone notice the PA guy last night give credit for Millers goal to Howard? Goal by Howard he said on the final time. I was perplexed.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Looks like Hank still has juice in the tank come playoff time which is great. He's also found a way to play with Mule and Bert well. Now we can only hope we can move some depth for a good forward for Pavel. Only issue is, where does Filp go now - third line?

That third period reminded me why I love Z. He always works extremely hard, even if the results aren't there, but it was nice to see his determination pay off with some well-deserved points last night. Completely took over the game in the third period.

Despite the recent strong run of success for the respective lines, I still think Filppula is a better fit with Datsyuk and Bertuzzi with Zetterberg. Z had been very good previously with Franzen and Bertuzzi on his wings. I don't really care where Franzen plays right now -- he's going to take most nights off until the playoffs anyways so he's basically going to look like a warm body for either center.

Really hope Z can build off that period and get back to being a dominant 1-2 punch with Pavel.

It's still not fixed at NHL.com. Anyone know how to point this out to the league? Any media contacts out there? I know this isn't the biggest deal in the world, but this is an easy fix. And Z needs all the points he can get this year.

Although he has played pretty well Datsyuk has 0 pts in his last 4 games.

I'm all for going with the lines we saw in the 3rd period in the PHO game. Franzen hasn't been too productive lately and I think it's good to see different match ups.

The third period last night was the 1st time this year Z has looked like himself. Maybe it a sign of the good things to come this year. Nice game Z

And fixed....three assists

I am all for Z, Bert, Mule if they are going to play like that. I think Datsyuk has a better skill set for being on a line with Hudler and Fil. He can dangle and move around in the zone with the puck better while they get in shooting positions. Z would just work his way into the zone and dump (shoot) the puck towards the net.
Z certainly looked energized just having the new line. I wonder if he was unhappy on a line with Hudler and Fil.

Maybe Emma is refusing sex until Hank is productive not only off the ice, but on it too.

Am I the only one who thinks Zetter turned it on after ASG? What is more interesting this turn looks intentional, I mean even visually he works way better than in the fist half. I know it is only two games, still he looked extremely impressive last two games.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Yeah I wonder what the reason was for his first half play? Marital troubles or injury back problems....?
