Henrik Zetterberg admitted his last game against Boston wasn’t his best, or close to it — tonight the captain made up for it. The Red Wings headed north of the border for the first game of their home-and-home series against the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Wings put on a show. Henrik Zetterberg assisted on all four of the team’s goals; the first two were masterful set-ups for Johan Franzen. Gustav Nyquist continued his scoring spree with a snipe late in the second period and by assisting Justin Abdelkader's second goal of the season in the third period. The Red Wings gave Jimmy Howard plenty of goal support and he continued to look good in goal by making 23 saves.
