Nyquist moved to top line with Zetterberg and Franzen hoping to generate more offense

DETROIT >> Gustav Nyquist practiced on the top line with Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen in hopes of boosting the Wings’ offense, which has just four goals in two games.

“We’ve been in 10 games now, we haven’t scored,” said Wings coach Mike Babcock, who included their eight preseason games. “You don’t score real easy so far. I’m impressed with how hard we work. I’m impressed with our specialty teams, to be honest with you, impressed with our team speed, but we’ve got to finish more.”

Nyquist has two of the Wings’ four goals this season.

“(Nyquist) is one of the players who can play on all four lines,” Zetterberg said. “He’s a smart player, got a lot of skill. The goal he scored against Anaheim, not a lot of players in the league can do that.”
