Zetterberg passes Lindsay in playoff points
DETROIT – It wasn't good enough to lift his team to a victory in Game 3 Tuesday, but Henrik Zetterberg’s two-point performance moved the Red Wings forward past one of the franchise’s legends in career playoff points.

In his seventh Stanley Cup playoffs with the Wings, Zetterberg now has 89 points, passing hall-of-famer Ted Lindsay for sixth all-time in club history. Zetterberg has scored 46 goals with 43 assists in 95 career playoff games since the 2004 playoffs.

Zetterberg tied Lindsay with an assist on Dan Cleary’s first-period goal that gave the Wings a 2-0 lead over the San Jose Sharks in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinals series at Joe Louis Arena. The Sharks scored the last three goals of the game, including Patrick Marleau's winner in overtime to take a decisive 3-0 series lead.

Lindsay played in 123 playoff games for Detroit, amassing 44 goals and 44 assists while winning four Stanley Cups.

Zetterberg gave the Wings a 3-1 cushion when he scored his team-leading 10th goal of these playoffs at 1:42 of the second period. He is 15-points shy of reaching another Wings’ legend, Alex Delvecchio, for fifth all-time. Delvecchio compiled 104 points in 24 seasons.

Zetterberg had an opportunity to collect a second goal when he was awarded a penalty shot at 16:28 of the first period Tuesday. But his attempt was thwarted by San Jose goalie Evgeni Nabokov.

The 2008 Conn Smythe winner, Zetterberg holds the team record for most points (27) and goals (13) in a single playoff season, doing so in the Red Wings’ most-recent Stanley Cup championship campaign. 

Recently minted hall-of-famer Steve Yzerman holds the franchise record for career playoff points with 185 in 196 games. Nicklas Lidstrom (173), Sergei Fedorov (163) and Gordie Howe (158) round-out the top four in career playoff points.
