from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY, Here are the unnatural occurrences by the Red Wings:
• They have been outscored 16-4 in their four losses.
• Three-time Selke Trophy winner Pavel Datsyuk has a minus-8 plus-minus rating in his last six games.
•Dan Cleary, who had 26 goals last season, doesn’t have a goal in his first nine games.
•Henrik Zetterberg, an 80-point player, is on pace for 27.
• They are 18th in the league on the power play and 21st on the penalty kill.
“Obviously we are having a hard time scoring goals,” Holland said. “We think we have people that have showed over time that they score at a certain standard, and they are not at that standard now. We are nine games in, and we think we will come around.”
