Gustav Nyquist has shined in two leagues this season. Before his dazzling two-goal performance on Thursday, he shined in the AHL, leading the Grand Rapids Griffins with 21 points in just 15 games, propelling them to first place in their division.

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

Holland
"(Nyquist) gave our team a boost. Our confidence needed a little boost and 17 seconds into the game Gustav Nyquist scored a goal, so it was great for our team, great for Gus and then he scored another goal."
- Ken Holland

"(Gustav) is confident and poised with the puck. He’s quick and makes good plays. Playing with Z and Franzen he fit in extremely well. He made plays and found open spots. You could tell he was excited. Playing the way he did he brought energy and made plays."
-Daniel Alfredsson

Win Faceoff Battle - Gain possession of the puck off the draw. Gather the puck, dictate the tempo and control the play.

Get Shots to the Net - The Wings had 47 shots last game, 40 percent coming from the D-Men. Continue that same pace tonight and get shots through.

Get Balanced Scoring - All four lines need to contribute. Bear down on scoring chances and try to capitalize on chances.

Detroit got the monkey off its back by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena. Newly-recalled forward Gustav Nyquist led the way with a pair of goals, including the game-winner with 4:02 left in the third. The 24-year old Swedish forward, called up from the Grand Rapids Griffins on Thursday, might be the spark the Red Wings need.

"He was a big factor in this game," captain Henrik Zetterberg said of Nyquist. "He comes in right away and scores on his first shift and he creates a lot of speed and energy. And it looks like he's got confidence."
Tonight, the Wings will look to keep the ball rolling against the Senators.
