There was much frustration last season on social media as Gustav Nyquist struggled to score goals and the Red Wings dropped in the standings.

Nyquist had scored 28 and 27 goals in his two most productive seasons. Last season he dropped to 12 goals.

Many Red Wings players caught fans’ aggravation, and Nyquist was just one.

It’s becoming a different story this season.

Nyquist’s two goals — including the 100th of his career — in Sunday’s 4-1 victory over Pittsburgh gave him 12 for this season.

“I don’t know, it’s a tough question to answer,” Nyquist said of what’s been the difference. “Last year I didn’t score as much as I would have liked and it’s hard to put a finger on it.

“Obviously it’s nice to see them go in right now.”

There should be one noted addition about last season: Nyquist had 36 assists, more like his game in college, at Maine, where he was a fine set-up man.
