From the Detroit News: Datsyuk trying to forget drought Tough to imagine Pavel Datsyuk going 26 games without a goal. But as Red Wings fans know -- and were quick to point to after the team's first-round playoff loss to the Oilers -- that's how long Datsyuk has gone without a goal in the playoffs. Datsyuk can't believe the length of the drought, either. And neither can I, or any other red blooded American with an unhealthy obsession for the success Russian hockey players. Hopefully this will be his year to break out in the playoffs. I've never really seen anything quite like this since... well... since Shanahan.
