Die hard Red Wings and Lions fan. Washed up hockey player, now beer leaguer and referee.

After dropping back-to-back road games after the All-Star break, the Detroit Red Wings have won two straight home games for the first time in two months. Detroit pummeled the New York Islanders 5-1 on Saturday, and surged for three goals in the third period last night against the Florida Panthers en route to a 3-0 win.

Petr Mrazek was stellar in both games, but the bigger story is that Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg have been reunited as linemates.

Nicknamed the “Euro Twins” because of their countries of origin and on-ice chemistry, Datsyuk and Zetterberg have always dazzled fans when playing together. Last night was no different, as Zetterberg assisted on both of Datysuk’s goals.

Datsyuk’s second goal exemplifies the chemistry of the two, as Datysuk received a beauty of a backhand pass from Zetterberg on a two-on-one to pad the Red Wings’ lead.

Coach Jeff Blashill paired the two together in hopes that it would boost offensive production, and that decision has paid off so far.

“I certainly thought that looked a lot like what we’ve seen at different times in the past” Jeff Blashill said on the reunion of Datsyuk and Zetterberg.

Blashill did not say whether the Euro Twins would remain on the same line going forward, but based on the recent offensive boost and improved defensive play by the entire team, I’d be shocked to see them separated any time soon.
