Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Sets table for three scores Monday

Vanek registered three helpers -- including two on the power play -- in Monday's 5-1 home victory against the Senators.

Operating on the third line, Vanek only skated for 12:53, but a whopping 4:11 of that amount took place with the man advantage. The Austrian winger is off to a hot start with five points in the first three games, leading all Detroit forwards -- just don't be surprised if he disappears on occasion, as he has the reputation of being an inconsistent player.
