Henrik Zetterberg assisted on a pair of Pavel Datsyuk goals -- one on the power play -- in Monday's 3-0 win over Florida.
It's been a season of decline for Zetterberg, thanks in part to not having Datsyuk alongside him early on, but he's been a little more reliable lately, notching six points over the last eight games. Zetter continues to play huge minutes on the top line for Detroit, and considering his track record, the thought of a scoring outburst over the season's last two months isn't far-fetched. At 35 years old, he's still got something left in the tank.
Spencer Dinwiddie was recalled from the D-League's Grand Rapids Drive on Tuesday, Keith Langlois of Detroit Pistons .com reports.
The Pistons aren't bringing Dinwiddie back to get a closer look at him in the team's rotation; instead, the second-year guard is just being examined by team doctors after he suffered a sprained ankle while playing in the D-League. Once the team determines the severity of the issue, Dinwiddie will likely report back to Grand Rapids.
Marvin Jones said he would like to re-sign with the Cincinnati Bengals but also noted that he won't take a hometown discount, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Jones missed all of 2014 with a foot injury, but he was productive in both 2013 and 2015 despite playing a complementary role in the Bengals offense. He's one of the top free agents at his position, and with the Cincinnati passing game likely to revolve around A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert for the foreseeable future, Jones can probably find a better contract elsewhere.
Craig Anderson stopped 31 of 32 shots in Monday night's 5-1 win over the Lightning.
Anderson's dominant showing improved his GAA to 2.86, but he still ranks 38th in the league in that category. Even so, the Ottawa Senators are showing patience with him as he's made 43 out of a possible 54 starts in 2015-16.
Pavel 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.
