Kronwall had a pair of assists in a 5-2 win over Nashville on Saturday night.

The Detroit Red Wings defenseman ended a four-game point drought, which followed a five-game stretch in which he totaled five assists. His 20 assists are good for second on the team behind Henrik Zetterberg's 26.

Kronwall left Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury.

The Detroit defenseman was back on the ice Saturday.

Kronwall scored two goals and added an assist Thursday in Detroit's 3-2 overtime win against Pittsburgh.

Kronwall scored two goals for the first time since 2010, when he accomplished the feat against Vancouver. The 33-year-old defenseman has 64 goals in his 11-year career.
