"Right now we need Alfie, and we need Mule and a whole bunch of guys to score. We haven’t gotten that much with playing with those guys so maybe if we get them playing with (Datsyuk and Zetterberg) as well."

"I’m pretty sure we’ll play together here at some point in time, but when we’ve been losing games like we have, haven’t been scoring much, we have to try something different.”

Generate More Offense - It looks like Datsyuk and Zetterberg will be on separate lines. With the EuroTwins on separate lines, the Wings need to get the more balanced scoring for which they've been looking.

Limit Turnovers - Detroit's got to be patient and make the safe play. Plus, players need to trust their teammates to cover for them.

Play as a Five-Man Unit - The defensemen and forwards need to interact with each other and play together as a group, especially against a tough New York Rangers team.

Tonight, the Wings will host Original Six rival, New York Rangers, for the first time as members of the same conference on Hockey Fights Cancer Night presented by Van Andel Institute's Purple Community. 

Detroit will have a different look tonight, as coach Mike Babcock broke up the pairing of Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk in hopes of generating more offense against the Rangers. Datsyuk will play on a line with Daniel Alfredsson and Todd Bertuzzi, Zetterberg will center a line with Johan Franzen and Tomas Tatar.

“It’s not going. I told them and you guys I wasn’t going to split them up and 11 games in I’m splitting them up,” Babcock told the media. “It wasn’t my plan and not necessarily what I wanted to do, but we need to.”

Datsyuk and Zetterberg have accounted for 11 of-Detroit's 25 goals. The hope is that splitting the two will generate more balanced scoring and keep opponents from focusing on stopping one line.

"I think Babs was pretty up front about it, we will be playing together until he needs to switch it up and now it’s time,” Zetterberg told the media after practice. I’m pretty sure we’ll play together here at some point in time, but when we’ve been losing games like we have, haven't been scoring much, we have to try something different."
