Zetterberg Scores Shootout Winner
Standard Spin: Henrik Zetterberg has been one of the most frustrating NHLers to own this season. He's gone scoreless in 12 straight contests - he does have 10 assist over that span - and has only 32 points in 43 games. Part of the problem may be that he's shooting less this season -he's on pace for 259 shots, down from his 3-year average of 308. Still, his pace is good enough to have him in the top 25 in shots amongst forwards, so that can only account for so much of the decline.
When you see him pull out a move like the one he used to undress Mike Smith and seal a 3-2 shootout win over the Coyotes on Thursday, it's easy to wonder why Zetterberg isn't producing more this year... (Jan.13)
