Henrik Zetterberg may start the year on a line with newly signed center Frans Nielsen.
With the team's acquisition of Nielsen and Dylan Larkin moving to center, it sounds like Zetterberg could be shifted to the wing this season. The plan is to give Larkin a chance down the middle, and certainly Nielsen is one of our top two center icemen," said GM Ken Holland. "We're thinking Zetterberg is going to play with Nielsen, so obviously if Nielsen is down the middle, Zetterberg is on the wing. Now, we have to also consider that Zetterberg and Larkin played real well together [last season]." Aug 23 - 11:52 AM

Henrik Zetterberg has one goal in four games against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Round 1 of the playoffs.

The Red Wings need to win on Thursday to stay alive in the series. "Start with me, I have to be better, got to produce more," Zetterberg said. "I'm not happy with the way it's been so far. ... I think when things don't go well, you overthink stuff. When everything goes well, you just do stuff, and it works out. We just gotta keep believing in what we're doing." Detroit's power play has struggled in the postseason and that's where Zetterberg produced 22 of his 50 points during the regular season.

Henrik Zetterberg is frustrated by the lack of success Detroit has had on the power play during the playoffs.

"We pass instead of shoot and when probably should shoot, we passed. They were blocking shots but we keep forcing pucks in there, too. We keep doing the same things over and over," he said after Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning. "They dominated the special teams." The Red Wings didn't score on four attempts in Game 4 versus Tampa Bay and are now 1-for-21 in the series.

Henrik Zetterberg found the back of the net in the Red Wings' 2-0 win over Tampa Bay in Game 3.

Zetterberg's goal was actually reviewed twice. Once because the on-ice officials wanted to see if he kicked it in and once because Lightning coach Jon Cooper challenged for goalie interference. This was Zetterberg's 57th career playoff goal. He sits third in franchise history behind Gordie Howe (67) and Steve Yzerman (70). The Red Wings still trail 2-1 in the series.

He’s (Zetterberg) available." The incident occurred late in the contest. Zetterberg had a plus-1 rating and one shot on Wednesday, but he didn't pick up a point.

Henrik Zetterberg is hoping for a long playoff run because he knows that he is running out of chances.

"For a few of us here, we know the chances of going all the way is getting less and less," said the 35-year-old forward. "When you've been in the league over 10 years, you know your time is running out. It's not just (Datsyuk), you never know when you get a chance again. ... The last couple years, the exits have been too early, we want to go deeper. Last year we were close, gave them a helluva series, and I thought we played well enough to move on. It's no different this year." Zetterberg led the Red Wings in scoring during the regular season with 50 points in 82 games.
