(Newser) – Henrik Zetterberg scored twice to carry the Wings to a 4-1 win over the Flames last night, the team's seventh straight victory, reports the Detroit News. The win capped off a three-game sweep of western Canada—never easy, and the Wings' first ever. Said one Flames player, "We left points on the table."

Zetterberg was the undeniable star with two goals that increased his season total to 14. He's recorded a point in every game this season—leading the league with 24—and has scored in 19 straight games dating back to last season. Goalie Chris Osgood has won his last eight starts.
