Recap: Wings 3, Blue Jackets 1

Last night, Henrik Zetterberg scored his third career hat trick last night to lead the Wings to a 3-1 victory. Hank had only three goals in the last 17 games before last night. So it's amusing that on the night everyone in attendance received a Zetterberg flag, he lights it up with three goals in the third period.

"It doesn't happen very often," said Zetterberg, who had gone seven games without a goal. "It was tough to get momentum going in the first two periods. There were a lot of penalties. But we turned it up a notch in the third period, and they played last night, and maybe they didn't have as much energy."

Chris Osgood made 22 saves in the game.
