The dominant two-way player the team is accustomed to seeing has resurfaced the past two months.
Zetterberg has 31 points (12 goals, 19 assists) in the past 23 games, after picking up only 35 points (nine goals, 26 assists) in his first 53 games.
“He’s the best player on the ice right now, night in and night out,’’ teammate Niklas Kronwall said. “He’s making things happen every shift, whether that’s working hard offensively or defensively. Right now he’s playing unbelievable.
“That whole line has been great for us.’‘...
Skating is the big difference in Zetterberg’s improvement. The sore ankle that nearly forced him out of the lineup for a brief time a month ago no longer is an issue.
“We had that discussion (about sitting out), and then Pav went down, so that was out of the question,’’ Zetterberg said. “It’s a lot better than it was a few weeks ago, so hopefully it will keep going like this into the playoffs.’‘
