Darren Helm (lower body) will suit up in Monday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Helm has missed each of the last four games because of a knee injury. He's skating on Detroit's fourth line with Luke Glendening and Drew Miller. Helm has eight goals and five assists in 42 games. He isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Darren Helm (lower body) is a game-time decision on Monday.

Helm has missed Detroit's last four games.He has eight goals and 13 points in 42 games in 2016-17.
Mar 27 - 12:19 PM

Niklas Kronwall has a knee injury.

Kronwall will miss Monday's game as a result. Dan Renouf has been called upon to make his NHL debut in Kronwall's absence.
Mar 27 - 12:18 PM

Dan Renouf will make his NHL debut on Monday.

Renouf has three goals and 15 points in 58 AHL games this season. He is drawing in because Niklas Kronwall has a knee injury.
Mar 27 - 12:17 PM

Petr Mrazek will probably get the nod on Monday.

Mrazek and Jimmy Howard have been alternating, so it's Mrazek's turn in that rotation. Mrazek has a 16-20-8 record, 2.99 GAA, and .901 save percentage in 46 games this season.

Jimmy Howard's strong play this season has complicated the Red Wings' decision when it comes to the expansion draft.

Howard missed significant chunks of the 2016-17 campaign due to injury, but when he's been healthy he's posted a 1.91 GAA and .935 save percentage in 22 games. Petr Mrazek, meanwhile, has struggled with a 2.99 GAA and .901 save percentage in 46 contests. The Red Wings can only protect one of the two in the expansion draft though and while Howard has had the better season, at the age of 25 Mrazek can still be regarded as the more viable long-term option. It'll be interesting to see how Detroit handles this situation.
Mar 27 - 9:53 AM

Tomas Tatar has 10 goals in his last 17 games.

Tatar is making up for lost time as he's now up to 22 goals and 40 points in 74 games this season. The 26-year-old finished with 21 goals in 2015-16, though he'll still finish behind his career high of 29 goals set in 2014-15.
Mar 27 - 9:48 AM

Dan Renouf has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings.

Renouf has three goals and 15 points in 58 AHL games. The 22-year-old defenseman might make his NHL debut during this stint.

Jimmy Howard kicked out 24 of 26 shots in a 3-2 overtime win versus Minnesota on Sunday.

Howard has won three straight games and four of his last five starts. He has a 9-8-1 record this season.
Mar 26 - 3:26 PM

Andreas Athanasiou scored the game-winning goal in Detroit's 3-2 overtime win against Minnesota Sunday afternoon.

It was Athanasiou's 17th goal and 27th point in 59 games this season. Mike Green and Tomas Tatar accounted for the Red Wings' other two goals. Gustav Nyquist registered a pair of assists for Detroit.
Mar 26 - 3:20 PM

The Red Wings will play three days in a row.

In today's NHL that never happens. The reason, of course, is the March 19th cancellation of Detroit's game against Carolina due to a snow storm. That means the Wings will play the Wild Sunday afternoon and the Hurricanes Monday and Tuesday nights. Look for Detroit coach Jeff Blashilll to alternate his goalies for each of those games.
Mar 26 - 10:09 AM

Jimmy Howard will probably be Detroit's starter against Minnesota Sunday afternoon.

It has not been confirmed but Howard is coming off a very fine 35-save, 2-1 win over Montreal and, although it wasn't his fault, Petr Mrazek lost his last start 2-1 in OT to Tampa. Detroit has been rotating their goaltenders down the stretch and it is Howard's turn if that continues. Plus, Howard has as lifetime 12-3-3 record and 2.18 GAA against the Wild. The game starts at 12:30 pm so check back with us early to confirm Sunday's starter.
Mar 26 - 10:01 AM

Gustav Nyquist registered an assist in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Nyquist picked up the primary helper on Henrik Zetterberg's goal in the second period. The Red Wings forward is up to 10 goals and 28 assists in 67 games. Nyquist has seen his offensive numbers decline in each of the last two seasons.
Mar 25 - 10:19 AM

Petr Mrazek allowed two goals on 32 shots in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Wings held a 1-0 lead heading into the third period, but they let it slip away. Mrazek has given up just two goals in each of his last two games, but he has just one win in his last seven games. He'll enter his next start with a 16-20-8 record, a 2.99 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.
