DETROIT — Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf comes into tonight’s game against the Wings on a 16-game points streak.
The streak is the longest in the league this season.
“He’s playing well, he’s a big part of their team,” Drew Miller said. “I don’t think in the past he’s scored as many goals as he has this year, he does so many other things well, passing the puck, power play, penalty kill, he does it all for this team.”
During those 16 games, Getzlaf has 10 goals and 13 assists.
“He’s someone you have to be above in the neutral zone,” Miller said. “You can’t let him have too much space. We’re going to try to keep him from really get going. If he gets his space early and gets his game going, he’ll rolling the whole game, so you got to keep him quiet as long as you can.”
Getzlaf is fourth in the league in scoring with 16 goals and 23 assists.
