Its not just that.  All season I've believed that the Wings offensive struggles are in large part down to their transition game.  In this 2nd stint Nyquist is bringing the puck through the neutral zone with speed, and because he has tricksy moves as well as pace he's forcing the opposition D back and we're gaining the zone much easier.

 

This x1000

 

Unless your are a Zetterberg type player, if you don't have size in this league, then you need speed.

 

He has been an energizer bunny out there similar to what Helm is and what Tatar had shown this season.

Nyquist has been great. So much speed, a big bag of tricks. Really fun to watch.

Nyquist has surprised me. His previous call-ups were lackluster and I was getting nervous that he was simply one that was dominant at every level except the big show. Completely changed my opinion. I thought he was going to be a lot more stronger on the puck than last season; he's finally displaying that now. Him and Tatar would be a deadly force together. Both small, both incredibly strong on the puck for their size. Incredible speed to break the neutral zone and cause space within the offensive zone. Goose is more of the playmaker though, while Tatar could be his finishing touch. Tatar strives to pot em, and is regarded as the goal scorer of the two. They could easily be a dominant 1-2 punch, but in the same sense, Goose and Brunner could be.

I feel like Nyquist took some advice from Tatar on what he needs to do to stay in the NHL because his drive and intensity mirrors what Tatar showed this year.

I've come up with the nickname for the 5 guys on the ice for that 2nd goal.  Scrapper's Torch.

 

Emmerton is f***in everywhere like a junkyard dog.

 

Tootoo throws the scrap around and even gets some gold in the process.

 

Quincey (when he isn't doing his best Lebderp) can be quite mean.

 

Smith went in to pick out the rubber

 

Eaves is there to execute it forward.
