Now THIS is how you run a man-advantage.
A terrific passing play by the Detroit Red Wings culminates in a power-play goal from Frans Nielsen. A tic-tac-toe setup saw the puck touch the sticks of Henrik Zetterberg, Justin Abdelkader, Gus Nyquist, and then Nielsen.
Be sure and watch for former Red Wing Brendan Smith’s diving attempt to stop Nielsen’s shot.

With plays like this, it makes you wonder where this was all season.
Unfortunately for Nielsen and company, the Wings lost to their former mate Smith and the Rangers 4-1 on Sunday. That’s now 11 losses in their last 15 games played.
