    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Opens fire in win over Florida

    Datsyuk directed seven shots on goal and got two of them -- one on a power play -- past Florida goalie Al Montoya in Monday night's 3-0 victory. Both tallies were just insurance, a Petr Mrazek spun a shutout for the Wings, but they're huge for Datsyuk, who hadn't found net in the last eight contests. Fortunately, he continued racking up assists even while the shots weren't finding twine. Even though his season point-scoring pace is still on the slow side by his standards, things look like they're trending up for The Magic Man, who's netted consecutive two-point games and seems primed for a strong run down the stretch.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Chips in two helpers Saturday

    Datsyuk earned a pair of assists in Saturday afternoon's 5-1 rout of the Islanders. The Magic Man grabbed the secondary apples on Detroit's second and third goals of the matinee, giving him 20 on the season. He may not have found twine (for the eighth game in a row), but Datsyuk is clipping along at a decent rate with 26 points in 36 games, so look for him to hit the scoresheet more often than not in the last two months of the season despite his steady decline.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Dishes out assist in win

    Datsyuk assisted on the opening goal in Monday's 4-2 win against the Islanders. Datsyuk snapped a rare two-game scoreless streak with the assist. Datsyuk has not gone without scoring for more than two games this season and sits at 24 points in 34 games. While his six goals and 7.8 shot percentage are a little disheartening for fantasy owners, the center is still producing at a high level, especially for a 37-year-old.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Comes up huge Thursday

    Datsyuk was phenomenal in Thursday night's overtime win over the Coyotes. He picked up a goal and an assist on the power play, followed by another helper on the game-winning score by defenseman Danny DeKeyser. The Magic Man is up to his old tricks with five points in the past two games. Better yet, a right ankle injury that required surgery in the offseason is a distant memory at this point. He's not scoring at his typical rate due to a career-low shooting percentage of 9.1, but that's splitting hairs as the Russian does have 21 points in 29 games.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Dishes out two helpers

    Datsyuk assisted on both goals in Monday's loss to the Kings. Datsyuk got the secondary assist on both first-period goals, but the Wings weren't able to find the net again for the rest of the night as they fell 4-2. The 37-year-old has tallied five assists in his last five games, but has had trouble finding the back of the net himself to the tune of a 8.1% shooting percentage, by far the lowest of his career.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Extends point streak to four games

    Datsyuk dropped the puck into the net Tuesday against the Jets, but the power-play score wasn't nearly enough as the Red Wings lost, 4-1. Recall that Datsyuk didn't get to start his 2015-16 campaign until Nov. 13 because he needed the additional time to recover from offseason surgery to repair ruptured tendons in his right ankle. He had just two goals and an assist in nine games before switching to a higher gear in December. The Magic Man now has a point in four consecutive games and a total of five goals and nine helpers in 22 games on the season. One glaring area of improvement for the Russian is a shooting percentage of 9.6. Datsyuk has never finished a season below 11 percent.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Nets lone goal in loss

    Datsyuk grabbed Detroit's only goal in a 3-1 loss to Minnesota on Monday. Datsyuk is on a roll, registering two goals and four assists in his last six outings. The veteran missed the opening 15 games on the season due to injury, but has put his name on the scoresheet with 13 points in just 21 contests.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Scores third goal of season in loss

    Datsyuk netted his third goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's loss to Vancouver. That's seven points in seven games for Datsyuk, who is starting to pick up speed after getting off to a slow start. Datsyuk has launched at least three shots on goal in four straight games and is sporting a tidy plus-6 rating on the year. He struggled at first when he returned from an ankle injury in November, but the 37-year-old is back on track and should be rolled out with confidence.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Snaps brief slump with two helpers

    Datsyuk notched a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-1 trouncing of Arizona. The veteran pivot hadn't found the scoresheet in three games, but he's looked good despite his slow start since returning from an ankle injury. Five points in 11 games don't send fantasy owners' hearts racing, though, so this makes for an appealing time to buy low.

    Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk: Scores for second straight game

    Datsyuk scored for a second game in a row, and posted a season-high five shots on goal while playing 19:46 in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins. Datsyuk's heroics weren't enough to carry the Red Wings to victory in this one, but the Russian forward has begun to find his groove of late. He now has two goals and eight shots in the last two games after failing to score on 13 shots in his first five appearances this season. While the 37-year-old is well past his prime, Datsyuk's recent performances indicate that he still has plenty left in the tank.
