Also of Red Wings-related note:’s James Harding suggests that fantasy hockey poolies pick up the Red Wings’ captain on the waiver wire:

Henrik Zetterberg, C/LW, DET (44 percent): The Detroit Red Wings forward had four points (one goal, three assists) and four SOG in their 7-6 overtime loss to the New York Islanders on Friday. Then, he had one assist in a 5-4 overtime win against the Washington Capitals on Sunday to extend his point streak to three games. Zetterberg has eight points (one goal, seven assists) and three PPP in his past seven games on the first line and power-play unit with forwards Anthony Mantha (LW/RW, 38 percent) and Gustav Nyquist (C/LW/RW, 14 percent).
