You decide: Which assist was better?

The passing wizardry was on display Sunday night, with Corey Perry and Pavel Datsyuk making some magic with their sticks.

Datsyuk helped the Red Wings get on the board against the Avalanche, regaining control of his own blocked shot to the right of the crease. Off-balance pass, he threw a no-look pass, cross-ice pass to Johan Franzen, who was parked on the faceoff dot and left with an empty net to simply tap it in.

Perry's helper involved some sleight of hand as well, as he tipped Teemu Selanne's flip pass from the top of the crease on the right-hand side through his own legs and Mike Lundin's across the slot for Ryan Getzlaf's easy lay-up, his sixth of the season.


PAVEL DATSYUK - 12/04/11 - ASSIST VS. AVALANCHE




COREY PERRY - 12/04/11 - ASSIST VS. WILD
