Mrazek entered the game nine minutes in after starter Jared Coreau allowed three goals on Boston's first eight shots. The Wings were down 4-1 after the first period and 5-4 heading into the third, but they battled back to tie the game in both instances before Frans Nielsen scored the game-winner in the shootout.

With Petr Mrazek in net, the Red Wings were eventually to win the game 6-5. Coreau didn't factor into the decision in tonight's game.

Tomas Tatar scored a goal and two assists in Detroit's 6-5 shootout win over the Boston Bruins.

Tatar picked up the primary assist on Dylan Larkin's first period goal, but the Red Wings still found themselves down 4-1 after the opening frame. But Detroit went to work in the second period, and Tatar's goal at the 14:36 mark tied the game at four. He also helped set up Gustav Nyquist's game-tying goal in the third, which eventually sent the game to overtime. In the shootout, Frans Nielsen scored the winner for the Red Wings, who have now won three in a row. Tatar is up to 10 goals and 12 assists in 45 games this season.

Jared Coreau will be in the crease for Wednesday's game against Boston.

That's no surprise after he posted his second shutout of the season on Monday against Montreal. Coreau has a 5-1-1 record with a 2.70 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage this campaign.

Darren Helm (shoulder) is slated to make his return this weekend, according to GM Ken Holland.

That could place him in the lineup on Friday at Buffalo or Sunday versus the New York Rangers. Helm hasn't played since Nov. 15 because of a shoulder injury.

Thomas Vanek scored the only goal in Detroit's 1-0 win over Montreal Monday afternoon.

Vanek extended his point streak to six games, giving him 12 goals and 30 points in 33 contests in 2016-17. Danny DeKeyser and Frans Nielsen each assisted on the marker.

Jared Coreau stopped all 18 Canadiens shots in a 1-0 victory Monday afternoon.

Coreau earned his second straight victory and his second shutout in eight career games. He hasn't always been good, but the struggling Red Wings have done well with Coreau in net as his record now stands at 5-1-1.

Jared Coreau will get the start on Monday.

Coreau is going for his second straight win after Detroit beat Pittsburgh 6-3 on Saturday. He has a 3.12 GAA and .903 save percentage in seven contests this season.
Jan 16 - 2:38 PM

Jimmy Howard (MCL sprain) was on the ice Monday morning.

Howard didn't take shots though. He's tentatively projected to return between the end of January and early February.
Jan 16 - 1:00 PM

Thomas Vanek might end up on the trading block before the deadline.

Vanek can become an unrestricted free agent this summer and unless the Red Wings start to heat up over the next month or so, they're not likely to make the playoffs. Vanek's having a strong season too with 11 goals and 29 points in 32 contests, so he might end up providing Detroit with a solid return in a trade.

After playing in his 10th game of his season and career on Saturday, Nick Jensen would need to be exposed to waivers if Detroit wanted to return him to the AHL.

Not that the Red Wings seem interested in demoting the 26-year-old defenseman any time soon. "He’s a real good hockey player," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "I know this, every coach that’s coached him – by that I mean the guy running the D – wants to put him back on the ice lots. That’s usually a good sign if you’re a defensemen. He earns trust in coaches because of his play. He’s accountable." That said, the Red Wings are giving Jensen third pairing minutes. He also doesn't have much offensive potential despite the fact that he has four assists in his first 10 games.

Jared Coreau made 28 saves and gave up three goals Saturday night as the Red Wings beat the Penguins 6-3.

Coreau has seen limited action this season so it is difficult to make any sweeping comments about his performance. His save percentage of .903 exactly mirrored his season average and with Saturday’s 3.00 GAA he was slightly better than the year-long .314. He helped win contests this time around, but is too much of an unknown to be a staple.

Gustav Nyquist scored one goal and had an assist as the Red Wings beat the Penguins 6-3 Saturday night.

Nyquist got the Red Wings started at the 9:01 mark of the second to lift them to within one of the Penguins. Throughout the second both teams exchanged goals and ended tied a 3-3. The Wings finally gained control in the third with an unassisted goal by Andreas Athanasiou, plus goals for Mike Green and Henrik Zetterberg. Nyquist provided assists on both. Anthony Mantha also assisted on the final two goals of the night.

Steve Ott, Ryan Sproul and Tomas Jurco will be scratched against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Of the three, it's the veteran Ott who has posted the most fantasy value. Through 37 games he has four points along with 56 PIMs and 80 hits. Not too shabby if you're in the right pool.
