I love how deep Detroit is.
Henrik Zetterberg came back from his broken leg last night and Detroit was worried about finding someplace to stick him.
Kris Draper has been playing in his spot on the Brett Hull-Pavel Datsyuk line and doing pretty well there.
It worked out, though.
Zetterberg put up a three point game as the Red Wings came back to beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2. The Wings were down 2-1 with less than 20 seconds to go in the third and goalie Curtis “Limbo” Joseph pulled. The reunited Hull-Datsyuk-Zetterberg line managed to tie it, though.
And then Zetterberg set up Brendan Shanahan to win the game in overtime. It was like Zetterberg had never hurt his leg.
So things are working out in the Motor City. I really can’t even imagine what they’ll be like with Derian Hatcher and Chris Chelios manning their blue line again.
And when their other trillion injured stars come back, too.
