Petr Mrazek stopped 31 of 34 shots in Detroit's 3-2 loss to Toronto on Sunday.

Mrazek played well, but still has just one win in his past four games. Mrazek's name has been caught in trade winds as of late, and with a 8-7-3 record, 2.89 goals against average and .910 save percentage, the 26-year-old may not have an abundance of takers.

Gustav Nyquist pitched in two assists during the Red Wings' 3-2 loss against Toronto on Sunday night.

Nyquist set up Anthony Mantha and Henrik Zetterberg, but the Wings fell to the Leafs on a late goal. Nyquist has 16 goals and 28 points in 58 games this season.

Petr Mrazek will start Sunday against Toronto.

Mrazek will get his second straight outing after he posted a 3-1 win over Nashville on Saturday. He has posted a record of 8-6-3 this season with a 2.88 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

Mike Green (upper body) won't play Sunday night versus Toronto.

This will be Green's second straight game on the sidelines due to an upper-body injury. He ranks fourth on the Red Wings with 29 points (six goals, 23 assists) in 56 games this season.

Luke Witkowski scored his first NHL goal on Saturday.

Witkowski was playing in his 74th career game. "Honestly I kind of blacked out a little bit," Witkowski in reference to his goal. "I just got the puck on my backhand and shot it. I got it past his blocker. It was crazy. It was cool, though." He's an enforcer that's unlikely to generate much offensively over the course of his career so goals like these are a bonus.

Petr Mrazek has excelled against the Nashville Predators in his career.

Mrazek has won all six of his career starts against the Predators, including Saturday's 3-1 victory over Nashville. Craig Smith managed to find the back of the net for the Predators at 14:35 of the third period, denying Mrazek what would have been his second career shutout against the Predators. "I saw that for the first time today that I was 5-0 against them," Mrazek said. "Every game is different and you never know what kind of bounce will go in, but it was nice that I got the (sixth) today." The Red Wings will play against Nashville again on Tuesday, so it will be interesting to see if Mrazek gets the start in that game as well.

Gustav Nyquist scored his 16th of the season in a 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

Nyquist has produced a mere two goals in his last 16 contests. He has 26 points in 57 games this season. Luke Witkowski and Darren Helm also found the back of the net in the match.
Feb 17 - 11:42 PM

Petr Mrazek made 31 saves on 32 shots in a 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

Allowing one goal on 32 shots is a fine way to rebound after allowing seven in your previous appearance. The Czech netminder now has three wins in his last five games for the Red Wings. Mrazek's record improves to 8-6-3 with a 2.88 GAA and a .909 save percentage.
Feb 17 - 11:42 PM

David Booth will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Nashville Predators.

He's now been scratched in seven of his team's last nine games. The veteran has four goals and one assist in 21 games this season. Xavier Ouellet is also expected to watch tonight's game from the press box. Neither player will have any fantasy value going forward.

Andreas Athanasiou (illness) will play in Saturday's game against the Nashville Predators.

The illness kept him out of Thursday's game against Tampa Bay. Athanasiou has 10 goals and 24 points in 45 games this season. He's currently riding an 11-game goal slump.

Petr Mrazek will get the start in Saturday's game against the Nashville Predators.

Mrazek has served as the backup goalie in each of Detroit's last three games after allowing seven goals in a loss to the Islanders last Friday. He has a 7-6-3 record with a 2.99 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season.
Feb 17 - 1:48 PM

Mike Green (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Nashville Predators.

Green is considered day-to-day at this point. He has six goals and 29 points in 56 games this season. With the trade deadline approaching, the Wings need to get him healthy as soon as possible.
Feb 17 - 1:37 PM

Niklas Kronwall recorded an assist in a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday night.

Kronwall's primary assist on Tomas Tatar's power-play goal was the only offense the Red Wings could muster in the contest. The veteran defenseman has contributed six assists in the last 13 matches. Kronwall has 16 points, including 14 helpers, in 53 games this year.
Feb 16 - 9:55 AM

Jimmy Howard allowed four goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Bolts jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period and they never looked back. The loss puts an end to Howard's two-game winning streak. He now has a 16-18-6 record with a 2.83 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage this season. Howard is nothing more than a mediocre number two goalie in most standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 15 - 11:38 PM

Tomas Tatar found the back of the net in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tatar's power play tally at the 19:29 mark of the second period cut Tampa's lead to 3-1 at the time, but that's as close as the Red Wings would come to making it a game. The 27-year-old has now scored three goals in his last three games. He has 15 goals and 25 points in 56 games this season. Niklas Kronwall and Tyler Bertuzzi picked up the assists on Detroit's only goal.
