DETROIT — Wings coach Mike Babcock broke up Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk off the Wings’ top line.
Johan Franzen skated with Zetterberg and Damien Brunner, while Datsyuk was paired with Todd Bertuzzi and Valtteri Filppula.
“Well, I did last game at the end,” Babcock said. “They haven’t scored, right? You just can’t keep doing things the same. They played together here today on the power play, they were apart on regular shifts, and we’ll see what happens.”
Through three games, Datsyuk has a goal and two assists, Zetterberg has two assists and Brunner has one goal.
