Pavel Datsyuk goes through Zdeno Chara to set up Henrik Zetterberg

Gregory Shamus

This play illustrates just about every skill Pavel Datsyuk has. He did everything.

The Detroit Red Wings picked up a 3-2 win in Boston on Monday afternoon, and it was Henrik Zetterberg opening the scoring mid-way through the first period. He had a little bit of help from Pavel Datsyuk.

There are so many great things about that play, including Datsyuk taking the puck from Patrice Bergeron. His move to go one-on-one against one of the best defenseman in the NHL (Zdeno Chara) and beat him. The ensuing pass by Datsyuk to put it right on Zetterberg's stick. And then Zetterberg beating Tuukka Rask from a terrible angle.

That is everything Pavel Datsyuk has to offer in one play, and it was incredible.

The Red Wings would add goals from Stephen Weiss and Dan Cleary to improve their record to 4-2-0
