VIDEO: Datsyuk return will energize Wings

Pavel Datsyuk has been out since Game 3 of the Western Conference final. The Wings have carried on mightily without him, going 4-2 along the way. More than anything, though, that success is a testament to Detroit's depth and Datsyuk's return will only make them more deadly.

With seven points in 13 playoff games, Datsyuk is 12th in team scoring and he is a Hart Trophy nominee as he scored 32 goals and 97 points in the regular season.

The Russian is eager to return to the lineup for Game 4, but if the team decides he's still not quite ready on game day, Datsyuk will certainly return for Game 5.

THN senior columnist Ken Campbell reports from Pittsburgh.
