Quote of the day 2 … Pavel Datsyuk

DETROIT — Pavel Datsyuk on Justin Abdelkader getting a boost of confidence scoring his first goal in nearly a calendar year.

“Of course it’s much easier when you score. But some people can see how many, like, how tough (his) work is that he does,” Datsyuk said. “He goes through and gets the puck to me or goes back in front of the net and fights for every puck. Some people only measure him if he scores. But if you see him total, he does a lot of hard jobs.

“It’s like there is somebody who needs to pull the piano and somebody needs to play the piano,” Datsyuk continued. “This is a guy who is one of the guys who pulls the piano.”
