By the Numbers: Pavel Datsyuk
By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2013 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on center Pavel Datsyuk.


The number of game-winning goals, tying his single-season high, scored by the Russian superstar in 2013. His last four GWGs came in road games – three of which were one-goal games – at EDM (Mar. 15), ANA (Mar. 22), PHX (Mar. 25) and COL (Apr. 5). 


For the first time in three seasons, he led the Red Wings in points, which included 34 assists. He averaged 1.04 points per game, which was his second-highest average in four seasons.


Number of goals scored by him, which is the first time since the 2009-10 season that he led the Red Wings in the category.


For the third time since the Red Wings' 2008 Stanley Cup season, he led the league in takeaways, tying Chicago's Jonathan Toews in steals this season.


Number of faceoffs won in Game 2 of the opening-round series against Anaheim. He was 20-of-28 in the faceoff circle in the Red Wings' 5-4 win that evened the series with the Ducks.


Combined number of faceoff wins in three games (all Red Wings' wins) against Edmonton. He was 44-of-63 in the cirlce against the Oilers, which was a .698 winning percentage, his best culmulative faceoff stats against all Western Conference teams.
