Pavel Datsyuk was asked what the Red Wings need in the final two months of the season and he replied, "more scoring."

"We haven't scored enough. Every game is (close). We need more scoring, it would be a much easier game. Every game is a one-goal game," said Datsyuk after returning to practice from the All-Star break. "Hockey has changed. Everybody plays more defense. They worry more about defense and less offense." Detroit is averaging 2.47 goals per game, which ties them for 20th in the league. Datsyuk had a productive January with 10 points in 11 games, but he scored just one goal of his own.

Pavel Datsyuk has earned a point on the last six goals the Red Wings have scored.

He has produced a goal and five assists during that span. "Pav is playing at a high level. He was before, but the points weren't coming," coach Jeff Blashill said.

Datsyuk's off-season surgery to repair ruptured tendons in his right ankle was believed to be part of the problem when he made his return in mid-November. However, that issue appears to be far behind him now.

The trio produced Detroit's only goal in Monday's 2-1 loss to Buffalo. Datsyuk had an assist in the match to give him eight points in 16 games.
