DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings surely liked what they saw of their new top line Friday night. Johan Franzen had two goals and two assists, Gustav Nyquist a goal and three assists and David Legwand a goal and two assists in the Red Wings 7-4 win over the New Jersey Devils. With four of the teams top centres heading into the season out with injuries, Detroit traded for the veteran Legwand - a Detroit-area native - in a deal with Nashville at Wednesdays trading deadline. The Red Wings wanted Legwand to be their No. 1 centre. Franzen is the right wing and Nyquist is on left wing. "Obviously two great players, world-class players, and its an honour to play with them, and we had the puck tonight," Legwand said. "We were moving it and I think, obviously, when you can move and skate its going to create some chances and opportunities." Red Wings coach Mike Babcock certainly liked the line. "Legwands line was outstanding with Gus (Nyquist) and Mule (Franzen), really set the tone for us," Babcock said. "We need that against (Travis) Zajacs line with (Jaromir) Jagr on him. I thought those guys did a great job for us. We were calm on the bench, did a real good job." Brendan Smith, Kyle Quincey and Drew Miller also scored for Detroit. Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves. Adam Henrique had two goals, Patrik Elias and Jagr also scored for New Jersey. Cory Schneider, who gave up seven goals for the first time in his career, stopped 25 shots. "The game spoke for itself," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said. "Disappointing. We didnt have many people that were very good tonight." The Red Wings led 5-3 after a wild second period in which seven goals were scored. Franzen gave Detroit a 2-0 lead when Nyquists shot went in off Franzens glove. But New Jersey scored three goals in 2:21 to take the lead. Elias short-handed goal put the Devils on the board, Jagr got his 20th goal of the season and 701st of his career, and Henrique got his 20th. Then the Red Wings got three goals in 3:14. Franzen scored his second of the game and 15th of the season on the power play. Nyquist picked up his 16th goal and Quincey gave Detroit a two-goal lead with his fourth goal. Legwand got his first goal as a Red Wing and Miller also scored in the third period Henrique got his second goal of the night with 1:18 left. Smith opened the scoring in the first period. He came straight off the bench and sent a one-time slap shot from just inside the blue line past Schneider. It was Smiths third goal. NOTE: The seven goals were a season high for Detroit. . Franzen has five goals and six assist for 11 points in the five games since the Olympic break. . New Jersey had its penalty reduced by the NHL for trying to circumvent the leagues salary cap on the contract of Ilya Kovalchuk, who has since retired and returned to Russia. The Devils originally lost their first-round pick in this years draft and were fined $3 million. New Jersey will pick 30th in the first round of the 2014 draft and the fine was reduced. ... Detroit C Darren Helm expects to miss a week due to vision problems after being hit in the head on Feb. 27 at Ottawa. ...

Powered by SportsCentre, ReOrientation is hosted by the NHL on TSN hockey analyst and 13-year NHL veteran and is directed by Gemini Award-winning TSN Feature Producer Michael Farrell. "Ive spent years focusing primarily on breaking down what happens on the ice, so this series is something of a departure for me, but we believe the issues of homophobia and the culture of sport need to be examined and discussed," said Ward. "We knew the series would reveal some compelling insights, and I know I took away a lot from it personally. I hope viewers will be able to do the same." ReOrientation takes a sobering look at the pervasive culture of casual homophobia that is common in the locker rooms of professional sports, and reveals the struggles of gay athletes to find acceptance. The series tells the stories of former NFL defensive tackle Esera Tuaolo, who struggled to hide his sexual orientation throughout his nine-year pro football career, and MLS midfielder Robbie Roogers, who in 2013 became the first openly gay man to compete in an elite North American sports league.dddddddddddd Ward also conducts interviews with a several NHL players, including Edmonton Oilers captain Andrew Ference, Los Angeles Kings captain and Stanley Cup champion Dustin Brown, Kings goalie Ben Scrivens, as well as league commissioner Gary Bettman, in order to examine changing attitudes in NHL locker rooms, as well as the impact made by the NHLs partnership with social advocacy organization You Can Play. With the ongoing controversy over gay rights in Russia causing global scrutiny ahead of the upcoming Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, ReOrientation charts the progress of professional sports culture as it slowly inches ever closer to equality. ReOrientation will be available for streaming on TSN Digital platforms after each of the series three parts appears on SportsCentre. Once it airs, you can visit TSN.ca/ReOrientation to watch the series in its entirety, alongside a slate of bonus clips with interview subjects. ReOrientation appears in every episode of SportsCentre from Wednesday through Friday, with each part premiering in the 6pm et edition.
