(HockeyStL) -- The Red Wings didn’t need their typical cast of scorers to beat the Blues Tuesday night. In fact, the team’s top three point-getters (Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen) combined for only one point in the 5-1 win.
Among those to notch a point in the victory were seven players who entered the game without a single point this season.
Daniel Cleary, Jakub Kindl and Cory Emmerton each scored their first goal of the season. Tomas Tatar, Justin Abdelkader, Drew Miller and Jordin Tootoo each added an assist for their first point of the season.
The Blues have only two players who have not registered a point this season (Kris Russell and Scott Nichol).
