That has kinda been my diagnosis for this last stretch of the season heading into the playoffs. Datsyuk is still dominant but Mule has hit a little funk which is understandable after missing so much time. They just seem to be trying too much out there, as opposed to watching Filppula and Zetterberg the other night, they just hounded pucks and got them to the net. Mule needs to keep it simple, get some ugly goals, then when he is rolling the hot hand again he can try the "me vs. the world" stuff we love him for.
Is the Datsyuk line trying to be too fancy with the puck and not willing enough to get the ugly goals?
