Henrik Zetterberg had a goal and an assist in Detroit's 4-3 overtime victory against the New York Islanders on Sunday.

Zetterberg has been heating up lately with points in each of his last four games and goals in three consecutive contests. He's up to six markers and 19 points in 26 contests this season. He's not the offensive force he once was, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him top his 2015-16 total of 50 points.

Petr Mrazek allowed three goals on 35 shots, good enough to claim a 4-3 victory over the Islanders on Sunday.

Confirming an earlier note, the Red Wings will return to Petr Mrazek on Sunday against the Islanders.

Through 15 games and 13 starts this season the young netminder has posted a 6-5-3 record with a .907 save percentage and 2.83 GAA. Thought it's just the Islanders tonight, Mrazek has been especially bad against Eastern foes thus far. Posting a 3-4-3 record with an .896 SV% and 30 goals against.

Jimmy Howard spent a second consecutive day on the ice working with the Red Wings' goaltending coach.

He is still recovering from a groin injury and will not play Sunday or Tuesday. Howevr, Howard is making progress and he could be ready to face shooters sometime late next week.
Dec 4 - 10:27 AM

Look for Petr Mrazek to get the start Sunday against the Islanders.

Jared Coreau made his NHL debut Saturday night against the Penguins and despite the fact he played well in a 5-3 loss, will likely be on the bench in favor of Mrazek for Sunday's 6:00 pm contest. Mrazek is coming off a tough 2-1 overtime loss to Florida in which he stopped 28 shots.
Dec 4 - 10:07 AM

Jared Coreau’s NHL debut resulted in a 5-3 loss of the Detroit Red Wings to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Coreau was not terrible with 32 saves on 36 shots, but he did not impress fantasy owners enough to make them want to take a risk on him before he returns to the AHL.
Dec 4 - 12:08 AM

Dylan Larkin scored at the 18:14 mark of the second period to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-1 lead, but they squandered it in the third and lost 5-3 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Dylan Larkin’s eighth goal on the season came with assists from Thomas Vanek (his seventh) and Mike Green (his 10th). Three of Larkin’s eight goals have come since November 25th and he has scored them in alternating games.
Dec 3 - 11:57 PM

Tomas Nosek and Brian Lashoff will watch Saturday's match with Pittsburgh.

Nosek has no points in six career NHL games, while Lashoff has 13 in 117 games. Neither boast any fantasy value, unfortunately.
Dec 3 - 6:04 PM

Jared Coreau will indeed get his first NHL start on Saturday.

Lucky for him, it'll be against some guy named Sidney Crosby from the Pittsburgh Penguins. The 25-year-old is 8-5 with a 2.39 GAA and a .923 save percentage in the AHL this season.
Dec 3 - 3:48 PM

The Red Wings have placed Justin Abdelkader on seven-day I/R with a sprained MCL.

The veteran winger is expected to miss the next two-to-four weeks, so this is just a perfunctory move so they can make a call-up from Grand Rapids. Abdelkader has four goals and eight points and 13 PIMs in 22 games this season.
Dec 3 - 2:35 PM

The Red Wings transferred Andreas Athanasiou (knee) to LTIR on Saturday.

That's tough news for the team and the youngster, who had picked up two of his four goals over the last five games. Through 13 games he has five points. He is considered week-to-week.
Dec 3 - 2:31 PM

The Detroit Red Wings have recalled Brian Lashoff from the minors.

Lashoff has 117 games of NHL experience, but he hasn't suited up in an NHL game since the 2014-15 season. The 26-year-old has one goal and two assists in 18 AHL games this season.
Dec 3 - 11:53 AM

The Detroit Red Wings have recalled Tomas Nosek from the minors.

The Red Wings have been hit hard by injuries, so they'll count on a couple of call ups to give them a spark. Nosek played six games with the Red Wings last season, but didn't register a point. The 24-year-old has two goals and eight assists in 11 games this season.
