Pavel Datsyuk Makes Logan Couture Fall Down With Deke During Red Wings-Sharks Game (VIDEO)

Red Wings superstar Pavel Datsyuk put his puck-handling prowess on display on Thursday, and this time it was at the expense of San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture.

Datsyuk caused the 24-year-old Couture to fall to the ice after a series of dekes that kept the young forward guessing. Perhaps channeling some inspiration from the 2013 NCCA Tournament, the Russian's one-on-one with Couture somewhat resembled an on-ice crossover.

To his credit, Couture joked about the highlight after San Jose's 2-0 win.
