DETROIT >> One player that has stepped up has been Gustav Nyquist, who has 14 goals and 11 assists in his last 21 games.
“He’s getting good opportunity but the other thing he’s doing is shooting the puck, he’s got to continue to shoot the puck,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “In the National League you score by shooting, not by passing. So he’s done a good job in that area, he has to continue to do that. They’ve had multiple centers because of our situation but he’s done a good job. When people get hurt other people get opportunity and they get big opportunity, so if you can grab hold of some of it you set yourself up.”
