Detroit Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg is distributing the puck well, as evidenced by his career-high 51 assists, tied for third in the NHL. But he wants to bury the puck more often. Zetterberg has scored only two goals in his past 26 games following Saturday's 5-3 win against St. Louis. "You want to score goals," Zetterberg said. "Even if you're having assists, it would be nice to get a goal or two soon." Zetterberg's dry spell isn't from a lack of shooting. He ranks sixth in the league with 268 shots. But his shooting percentage (6.8 percent) was tied for the lowest among the NHL's top 69 point-producers. "I think I get enough shots. It's more of when I get chance I got to take care of it," Zetterberg said. "I think you're maybe squeezing the stick a little bit too much. You think about it, you want to score instead of just go with the flow and once you get a chance you put it away."
