Gustav Nyquist needs to improve his play at even strength.

"Nyquist is a real good player, he's scored a lot this year on the power play, not as much on even strength," coach Mike Babcock said. "For him to be at the highest point of his game, he has to be on pucks more. He has to be more tenacious. The more retrieval races you win, the more you have the puck and the more you're on offense and the more goals you're going to score." He has scored 12 of his 21 goals this season on the power play and he has a minus-9 rating. Nyquist has been playing on the third line lately.
