BREAKING: Pavel Datsyuk is good at hockey


By Allan Muir

Good grief. Pasha was at it again this afternoon, this time leaving a quintet of Los Angeles Kings' defenders to bathe in the red light of shame as they picked up the paraphernalia they shed watching him skate through, by and around them.

The Red Wings were on a power play just over five minutes into the opening frame at Joe Louis this afternoon when Henrik Zetterberg found Datsyuk cutting through the middle. A couple of knee-breaking dekes later, he whips a wrister high glove past Jonathan Quick.

If you bought a ticket to this one, Datsyuk gave you your money's worth early. The rest is all gravy.
