After making a heads-up play in a race to a loose puck in the Hawks' zone, Henrik Zetterberg brought the puck behind the Chicago goal line before firing a pass through a defenseman's skates to Brendan Smith at the back door. Aside from his contributions offensively, Zetterberg's value in the series will also come in the form of providing a tough defensive matchup for Hawks captain Jonathan Toews. (Updated 5/19/13).
Even though he played in all 82 games for the first time in his NHL career last season, Henrik Zetterberg recorded his lowest points total (69) in the past five seasons. Back issues made him a durability concern a couple years ago, but now that he's missed just two contests in the last two seasons combined, those worries should subside. Much like teammate Pavel Datsyuk, Zetterberg's offensive regression could be attributed to an aging supporting case. Without a big change in personnel in the team's top six this summer, Zetterberg appears poised for another season in the 70-point range. There is also some question as to whether the Wings' power play can rebound from a disappointing season (22nd in conversion rate at 16.1%) while entering year one post-Lidstrom. (Updated 8/14/12)
