Gustav Nyquist has without a doubt been nearly unstoppable as of late. The Swedish forward is riding a 10-game point streak, and has scored 23 goals in 28 games after having just 63 NHL games of experience. He joins Alex Ovechkin and Pavel Bure as only the third player in NHL history to do that.

He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!

Don't Take Buffalo Lightly - The Sabres are out of the playoff picture and are playing with nothing to lose. You have to respect them and play them as if they were in the hunt. Detroit can't have an emotional letdown after such a big win against Boston.

Start Fast - Everyone needs to get going from the drop of the puck. No exceptions.

Win Special Teams Battle - Stay out of the box, play well in the offensive zone and force them to take penalties, and be strong on the PK.

Forward Pavel Datsyuk will be in the Red Wings' lineup for the first time since Feb. 27. He missed 16 games with a left-knee injury; Detroit was 8-6-2 without him.

"It's been long time [not playing]. I forget I'm a hockey player," Datsyuk told the team website Thursday. "[It's] exciting to come back."

Datsyuk is likely to play wing on a line with two players who recently returned from injury: Darren Helm (concussion) and Justin Abdelkader (finger).

"I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about the lines in practice today," coach Mike Babcock said. "I've still got 24 hours to decide what I'm doing. I think [Pavel] will probably start on the wing, to be honest with you, because that's what he normally likes to do when he comes back. I'll talk to him tomorrow morning and kind of get a read on where we're at."

Forward David Legwand was moved back to a line with Johan Franzen and Gustav Nyquist.

Detroit, coming off a 3-2 win against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday, its third in a row, holds the first Eastern Conference wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Tonight, they'll go for their fourth straight win against the Sabres.
