On Feb. 2 of last season Detroit Red Wings forward Johan Franzen had a career night scoring five goals during 7-5 win against the Ottawa Senators.

Unfortunately for Franzen and the Wings, he would score just two more goals over the final 27 games of the regular season, a goal-scoring drought that is rather unheard of for a player that’s established himself as one of the NHL’s best power forwards. Even with the slow finish to the season he was still Detroit’s leading goal-scorer with 28 goals, two more than Dan Cleary, who finished with 26.
