Veteran Pavel Datsyuk scored two goals as the Detroit Red Wings shut out the visiting Florida Panthers 3-0 Monday night.

Datsyuk has been pretty hot lately. He notched two assists in a 5-1 win over the Islanders last Saturday. On the season, he has eight goals. Henrik Zetterberg assisted on both of Datsyuk's goals. Zetterberg now has 27 assists on the season. Datsyuk has seven goals. Tomas Tartar had Detroit's first goal Monday. He now has 16 on the season.

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

The 24-year-old has six goals and 12 points in 29 games this season. This will be his third straight game as a healthy scratch. Joakim Andersson will join him in the press box.
Feb 8 - 7:41 PM

Petr Mrazek will be between the pipes in Monday's game against the Florida Panthers.

The 23-year-old has eight wins in his last 11 contests. Mrazek has a 19-10-4 record with a 2.03 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage in '15-16.

Jakub Kindl will get back into the fold on Monday night.

He will play against Florida because of a groin injury to Mike Green. Kindl, who was brought up from the AHL late last week, hasn't played in a game for the Red Wings since Dec. 29 versus Winnipeg.

Mike Green will not suit up in Monday's game against Florida due to a groin injury.

Green, who has had groin troubles in the past, scored a goal in back-to-back games before getting sidelined. He has four goals and 21 points in 46 contests this campaign.

Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk are expected to play together for a while after they joined forces in Saturday's win over the New York Islanders.

"I told them this isn't going to be a short-term thing," said coach Jeff Blashill. "And I don't know what long term means, but we've got a good home stand, here. Let's see if they can feed off each other, that way."

Pavel Datsyuk registered two assists in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Islanders.

He skated alongside Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader for most of the match, but his assists came on goals by defensemen Kyle Quincey and Mike Green (power play). Datsyuk had one helper over his previous five outings.
Feb 8 - 9:49 AM

Brad Richards has two assists in Saturday's win over the Islanders.

Richards set up Mike Green's power play goal in the second period and Dylan Larkin's goal in the third frame. The 35-year-old has five goals and 15 points in 38 games this season. He's only worth an add in deeper fantasy leagues.
Feb 7 - 11:39 AM

Dylan Larkin scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the New York Islanders.

Larkin picked up the primary assist on Kyle Quincey's first period goal and he added one of his own in the third period to extend Detroit's lead to 5-0. The 19-year-old has 18 goals and 37 points in 51 games this season.
Feb 7 - 11:36 AM

The February 14th match between Detroit and Boston has been moved back to 3:30 PM eastern.

The original start time for the game was only 3:00 PM, so this shouldn't affect anyone too much. The game will still be broadcast on NBCSN.

Petr Mrazek turned aside 28 of 29 shots in a 5-1 win over the Islanders.

The 23-year-old goaltender is now 7-2-1 in his last 10 games with a 1.30 GAA and a .952 save percentage. As we get closer and closer to the end of the season, look for Mrazek to lose less and less starts to Howard. Keep starting the impressive Mrazek in goal.
Feb 6 - 5:13 PM

Gustav Nyquist recorded two assists in a 5-1 win over the Islanders on Saturday.

Nyquist isn't having a terrible season, but he is capable of much more. He might be turning the corner on his season with four points in his last fives games. His assists were on goals by Tomas Jurco and Tomas Tatar. Nyquist now has 29 points in 52 games.

Jimmy Howard hasn't won a game since Dec. 3, but he doesn't believe his confidence is an issue.

"A couple of bounces here and there, and for me, it could be a totally different game," he said. "I'm not going to sit here and make excuses to you guys. Like I've always said, I'm just going to continue to work. I know how fortunate I am and I'm going to remain positive." Howard is looking for some "puck luck" when he gets to play again and that next chance may come on Feb. 15 at the New York Islanders when Detroit plays the second game of a back-to-back situation.

Coach Jeff Blashill likes the way Brendan Smith is playing.

"He's made more positive plays than negatives, and that's what I look at the end of the night for each guy," said the Red Wings bench boss. Blashill likes the way Smith is managing risk versus reward plays.
Feb 6 - 10:08 AM

Andreas Athanasiou is projected to play with Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist.

"We think we can really have an identity of being an extremely fast team," coach Jeff Blashill said. "When you go (Darren) Helm, Athanasiou, (Dylan) Larkin — it's just a team that can have a lot of team speed." Athanasiou is excited for the opportunity and he feels the trio can generate plenty of offense.
