Henrik Zetterberg has been on fire as of late, and it's not from scoring goals. Z has been setting his teammates up like a mad-man recording 7 assists in four games! Justin Abdelkader's recent 4 goals in four games stretch has a lot to do with the sauce Zetterberg has been serving up. Look for Z to drop a few more dimes tonight against Columbus and maybe even put one in the back of the net.
