Jared Coreau allowed four goals on 28 shots in a 5-3 loss to the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals.

Coreau is in the minors on a conditioning stint. He hadn't played in a game since Feb. 12, so it's normal that there was a bit of rust. According to MLive.com, he has no chance on the first two goals and he also had to face two 5-on-3 power plays from the opposition. Expect Coreau to re-join the Red Wings once their bye week ends on Monday.

According to odds found on Bovada (a sports betting website), Thomas Vanek is likely heading back to Montreal before the trade deadline.

With the trade deadline coming up on Wednesday, the website puts the odds of that happening at 7-1. Keep in mind that the last time the Canadiens acquired Vanek, they made it to the third round of the playoffs, but he finished that postseason run on the fourth line. Vanek to Montreal is unlikely to happen again.

Coreau hasn't played since Feb. 12 because Petr Mrazek has been playing much better lately, but the team still needs him because Jimmy Howard isn't ready to return yet.

Dylan Larkin logged a career-low 7:58 of ice time in Detroit's 5-2 win at Pittsburgh on Sunday.

The struggling sophomore has played fewer than 12 minutes in three of his last five games. "First of all, we're coming off a back-to-back. We played lots of guys. But at times, he got shorted some ice," coach Jeff Blashill said. "Right now, he's not on the power play and, right now, he's not on the penalty kill. When you're not on either one of those units, it's hard to play lots. It's just the reality of the situation." Larkin has one goal in the last 20 games and he has just three assists during that span.

He has a 5-7-1 record, 1.96 GAA, and .934 save percentage in 17 contests this season.
