It will take scientists years to figure out just where Pavel Datsyuk came from. It says Russia on the roster, but he is quite clearly not of this world.
Datsyuk showed his otherworldly skill once again in putting the Red Wings up 1-0 over Anaheim in the first period of a must-win Game 6 for Detroit. The goal itself is pretty, sure, but Datsyuk's entire shift as rehashed in the instant replay shows just how good he can be.
Don't forget about Henrik Zetterberg, though. The pass he makes out of the corner to spring Datsyuk was incredible, too.
Detroit fans are awfully spoiled with these two on the ice at the same time.
