Petr Mrazek will start for Detroit on Saturday.

This will be Mrazek's third start in Detroit's last four games. He has a 2.06 GAA and .931 save percentage in 34 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 5 - 3:33 PM

Andreas Athanasiou has been promoted by the Detroit Red Wings.

Athanasiou has a goal in six games this season. He has eight goals and 16 points in 26 contests in 2015-16.

Niklas Kronwall (knee) hopes to be back skating this weekend or early next week.

He isn't able to come off the injured list until Feb. 14, but he may be able to return shortly after that. "That all depends on the conditioning and how you feel once you get back on the ice," Kronwall said. "And of course Blash (coach Jeff Blashill) is the one making the final call. Hopefully there are no setbacks. You get your legs under you and get your timing back and when you feel ready, Blash makes his decision." He is still on the mend from arthroscopic left knee surgery on Jan. 19.

Mike Green scored his third goal of the season on Thursday in a 6-3 loss to Florida.

He got his second goal on the power play in the match. Detroit went 2-for-7 with the man advantage against the Panthers. Green has 20 points in 45 games this season.
Feb 5 - 7:58 AM

Justin Abdelkader earned two assists in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Florida.

He helped set up power-play goals by Dylan Larkin and Mike Green in the defeat. Abdelkader has 12 assists and 26 points in 51 games to go with 57 penalty minutes and 129 hits.
Feb 5 - 7:54 AM

Jimmy Howard was rather unimpressive in a rare start for the Red Wings in Thursday night's game against Florida.

The veteran allowed five goals on 32 shots, and it doesn't appear he'll be playing too often with Petr Mrazek outplaying him. Howard's record falls to 7-8-4 this season.
Feb 4 - 10:39 PM

Dylan Larkin sniped two goals in the Wings' 6-3 loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

The 19-year-old is enjoying a terrific rookie campaign, with 35 points through his first 50 games. He would be an attractive add or trade target in dynasty leagues if you're looking to acquire future talent.
Feb 4 - 10:26 PM

Teemu Pulkkinen is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers.

The 24-year-old missed the last game before the All-Star break because of an unknown reason, but played in the first game back from the break. He has six goals and 12 points in 29 games this season. Jakub Kindl will join him in the press box.

Riley Sheahan (illness) will rejoin the Red Wings on Thursday.

Sheahan missed Wednesday's contest due to the disease. He has seven goals and 13 points in 49 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 4 - 1:07 PM

Jimmy Howard will start for Detroit on Thursday.

Howard has only played in one of Detroit's previous seven games, thanks to the rise of Petr Mrazek. Howard has a 2.76 GAA and .908 save percentage in 19 games this season.
Feb 4 - 12:18 PM

Jakub Kindl has been summoned by the Detroit Red Wings.

That brings Detroit up to seven available defensemen. Kindl has two goals and five points in 23 games with Detroit this season.
Feb 4 - 11:49 AM

Tomas Tatar picked up an assist in Wednesday's loss to Tampa Bay.

He has earned two helpers in his past three games, but he has gone six straight outings without scoring a goal. Tatar has 14 goals and 29 points in 49 contests this campaign.
Feb 4 - 8:04 AM

Riley Sheahan (illness) hopes to return Thursday against Florida.

"He could probably play but wouldn't be able to play at 100 percent," coach Jeff Blashill said after deciding to keep Sheahan out on Wednesday. "My kind of rule of thumb is we want guys, even when they don't feel 100 percent, to play at 100 percent and Riley isn't quite there." Luke Glendening took Sheahan's place between Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist.
Feb 4 - 7:58 AM

Darren Helm has been serving as the net-front player on Detroit's power play.

"I love it," he said. "Nobody loves to be crosschecked and get hit in front of the net too often, but I love to be out there. OK, I don't love it, but love to be part of that power play and try to do some things to help." He hasn't earned any points on the power play this season, but that could change if his new role continues. Helm has four goals and nine assists in 46 games.
Feb 4 - 7:53 AM

Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek stopped only 20 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Lightning in Tampa Bay Wednesday night.

It wasn't one of Mrazek's better games. He was beaten for goals on two Lightning power plays. His goals-against average is now 2.06 and his save percentage, .931. His win-loss record is 18-10-4. He's still not a bad fantasy choice. He posted a 7-1-1 record, remember, in January.
