Mar 24 - 12:33 PM

Gustav Nyquist said he's fine to play on Friday.

That's not surprising, but we're making note of it because Nyquist skipped Thursday's practice for maintenance reasons. He has 10 goals and 37 points in 66 games this season.

Petr Mrazek is expected to start Friday's game versus Tampa Bay.

It will be his turn in the goalie rotation, as he continues to share action with Jimmy Howard. Mrazek dropped a 2-1 decision to Buffalo on Monday in his last outing. He will enter Friday's match with 16 wins, a 3.01 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage over 45 appearances this year.

Darren Helm (lower body) participated in Thursday's practice, but it's unclear if he'll be ready to play on Friday.

Gustav Nyquist had the day off on Thursday, but is still projected to play on Friday against Tampa Bay.

Anthony Mantha feels he learned his lesson from being a healthy scratch twice earlier this month.

"He just wants me to bring it every night, and that is, basically, what I need to learn," Mantha said referring to coach Jeff Blashill. "We have been working on it for years now, even when I was playing in (Grand Rapids), we were talking about it. It's just something that needs to come into my mind and be an automatic instinct for me to move my feet as hard as I can and do the little details." Mantha didn't have a point in six outings prior to scoring the game winner against Montreal on Tuesday night.

Filip Hronek has agreed to an amateur tryout agreement with the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins.

Evgeny Svechnikov is unlikely to see time with the Red Wings down the final stretch of this season.

"We think success in Grand Rapids and a potentially long playoff run is a huge part of development," coach Jeff Blashill said. "That has been a process that we have gone about for the last five, six years. Keeping those guys in a position where they are having success is a really important thing and hopefully they can continue to finish this regular season strong and go on a long playoff run." Svechnikov has produced 17 goals and 40 points in 62 games with Grand Rapids this year. He should get a long look at training camp in the fall prior to the 2017-18 campaign.

Justin Abdelkader got the first goal of Tuesday's match against Montreal just 53 seconds into the game.

Mar 22 - 10:31 AM

Jimmy Howard stopped 35 of 36 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 OT win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Thankfully for Howard, his team came up with a dominant performance in the overtime period and they eventually came away with a win. Howard now has an 8-8-1 record with a 1.91 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage this season.
