There are several Detroit Red Wings players that could be blamed for the recent turn of fortunes for the squad. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg have not been playing up to their usual standards for instance, and it's not a coincidence that the team hasn't been winning.
The Wings recently managed to snap that six game losing streak—the longest winless streak for the squad since 2008. Of course the team managed to win the Stanley Cup that season so perhaps this is all part of some master Mike Babcock plan.
Goals have been a huge issue for the team over the last few weeks, which is puzzling since they've fired more shots than your average Clint Eastwood western. Not to imply that there is such a thing as an average Clint Eastwood shoot 'em up, but I digress.
There are a few players that need to find their top form if the Wings are going to contend for the Central Division. Here are four guys besides Zetterberg and Datsyuk that need to get going if the Wings are going to start winning more games.
