After suffering a 3-2 shootout loss against Boston in Detroit on Wednesday, the Red Wings will look to bounce back in the first of back-to-back games against the Maple Leafs. The good news is forward Gustav Nyquist keeps providing offense in the absence of injured two-way center Pavel Datsyuk (shoulder). He's doing it despite coach Mike Babcock flip-flopping him and forward Justin Abdelkader between the top line and third line. Nyquist was bumped to the third unit against Boston mid-game, but scored a goal on a power play to give him a goal in all three of Detroit's games. Including the 2013-14 regular season, Nyquist has 26 goals in his past 37 regular-season games. Nyquist will look to continue his torrid pace as the Wings look to squeak one out tonight in Toronto.
