Henrik Zetterberg's recent roll has carried him beyond Pavel Datsyuk.

While extending his goal streak to three games in a win over the New York Islanders on Sunday, Zetterberg passed his long-time teammate on the Detroit Red Wings' all-time goal-scoring list with the 315th of this career.

He now ranks alone in seventh on the all-time list after entering the season tied with Brendan Shanahan for eighth.

Somewhat surprisingly, Zetterberg surpassed Datsyuk in fewer games, though the two late-round steals that epitomize what made the Red Wings great for so many years share a near-identical per-game scoring rate.

Zetterberg is 63 points behind the recent NHL retiree on the club's all-time points list. He made his debut with the Red Wings one season after Datsyuk's arrival.
