Two of those points were recorded in the first period, as he registered the primary assist on Anthony Mantha's tally before adding one of his own which made it 3-0 for Detroit. The Wings captain then assisted on Mantha's second goal of the game (5-2) before eventually setting up Mike Green's game-tying goal (6-6) with under 30 seconds remaining in regulation. The 37-year-old now has seven goals and 38 points in 53 games. This was his first multi-point effort of 2018.

The Detroit Red Wings have been in a steep decline lately.

Detroit suffered a seven-game losing streak that was capped with a 10-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Dec. 2. The Red Wings stopped the bleeding with a 5-1 win on Tuesday, but they fell right back with a 6-1 defeat against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. "I’ve been frustrated and mad the way we’ve been playing lately," Henrik Zetterberg said. "But today, you don’t want to lose at home 6-1, but the first two periods we did a lot good things but the puck ended up in our net rather than their net." At this point, the Red Wings are 11-13-5 this season. There is still a chance they can claw their way into the playoffs, but based on what we've seen so far this season, the 2017-18 Red Wings don't look like a postseason caliber team.

Henrik Zetterberg was frustrated and almost in shock after Detroit was pounded by Montreal in two games last week.

The Canadiens defeated the Red Wings 6-3 on Thursday and 10-1 on Saturday. "I've played professional hockey for 20 years, I don't think I've ever been a part of anything like what happened here tonight," Zetterberg said after Saturday's contest. "The way we played, with the way our last game went, what happened after that game, the next day – and then we come out with this here tonight." He hasn't recorded a point in the last three games after he had an assist in three straight outings. Zetterberg, who has 15 points in 27 games, will try to get his team to bounce back against the red hot Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

With just 12 goals in their last six games, the Red Wings are focused on getting the 'dirty' goals to get going offensively.

'Dirty' goals can be categorized by either tips, rebounds, screens, or second-chance opportunities. "We’ve got to get better on a few things, score some uglier goals," captain Henrik Zetterberg said."Pucks are laying there. We’ve just got to win those battles. We were in front of the net but we didn’t win any second battles or second chances. It’s been an issue before, I would say, but the last two games it had been better." Zetterberg, 37, is fourth on the Red Wings in points with 10 in 14 games. If the Red Wings wish to get back into the post-season, they will need more goal scoring from the top to the bottom of the lineup.
