The February 14th match between Detroit and Boston has been moved back to 3:30 PM eastern.

The original start time for the game was only 3:00 PM, so this shouldn't affect anyone too much. The game will still be broadcast on NBCSN.

Petr Mrazek turned aside 28 of 29 shots in a 5-1 win over the Islanders.

The 23-year-old goaltender is now 7-2-1 in his last 10 games with a 1.30 GAA and a .952 save percentage. As we get closer and closer to the end of the season, look for Mrazek to lose less and less starts to Howard. Keep starting the impressive Mrazek in goal.

Gustav Nyquist recorded two assists in a 5-1 win over the Islanders on Saturday.

Nyquist isn't having a terrible season, but he is capable of much more. He might be turning the corner on his season with four points in his last fives games. His assists were on goals by Tomas Jurco and Tomas Tatar. Nyquist now has 29 points in 52 games.

Jimmy Howard hasn't won a game since Dec. 3, but he doesn't believe his confidence is an issue.

"A couple of bounces here and there, and for me, it could be a totally different game," he said. "I'm not going to sit here and make excuses to you guys. Like I've always said, I'm just going to continue to work. I know how fortunate I am and I'm going to remain positive." Howard is looking for some "puck luck" when he gets to play again and that next chance may come on Feb. 15 at the New York Islanders when Detroit plays the second game of a back-to-back situation.

Coach Jeff Blashill likes the way Brendan Smith is playing.

"He's made more positive plays than negatives, and that's what I look at the end of the night for each guy," said the Red Wings bench boss. Blashill likes the way Smith is managing risk versus reward plays.
Feb 6 - 10:08 AM

Andreas Athanasiou is projected to play with Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist.

"We think we can really have an identity of being an extremely fast team," coach Jeff Blashill said. "When you go (Darren) Helm, Athanasiou, (Dylan) Larkin — it's just a team that can have a lot of team speed." Athanasiou is excited for the opportunity and he feels the trio can generate plenty of offense.
Feb 6 - 10:01 AM

Petr Mrazek will start for Detroit on Saturday.

This will be Mrazek's third start in Detroit's last four games. He has a 2.06 GAA and .931 save percentage in 34 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 5 - 3:33 PM

Andreas Athanasiou has been promoted by the Detroit Red Wings.

Athanasiou has a goal in six games this season. He has eight goals and 16 points in 26 contests in 2015-16.

Niklas Kronwall (knee) hopes to be back skating this weekend or early next week.

He isn't able to come off the injured list until Feb. 14, but he may be able to return shortly after that. "That all depends on the conditioning and how you feel once you get back on the ice," Kronwall said. "And of course Blash (coach Jeff Blashill) is the one making the final call. Hopefully there are no setbacks. You get your legs under you and get your timing back and when you feel ready, Blash makes his decision." He is still on the mend from arthroscopic left knee surgery on Jan. 19.

Mike Green scored his third goal of the season on Thursday in a 6-3 loss to Florida.

He got his second goal on the power play in the match. Detroit went 2-for-7 with the man advantage against the Panthers. Green has 20 points in 45 games this season.
Feb 5 - 7:58 AM

Justin Abdelkader earned two assists in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Florida.

He helped set up power-play goals by Dylan Larkin and Mike Green in the defeat. Abdelkader has 12 assists and 26 points in 51 games to go with 57 penalty minutes and 129 hits.
Feb 5 - 7:54 AM

Jimmy Howard was rather unimpressive in a rare start for the Red Wings in Thursday night's game against Florida.

The veteran allowed five goals on 32 shots, and it doesn't appear he'll be playing too often with Petr Mrazek outplaying him. Howard's record falls to 7-8-4 this season.
Feb 4 - 10:39 PM

Dylan Larkin sniped two goals in the Wings' 6-3 loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

The 19-year-old is enjoying a terrific rookie campaign, with 35 points through his first 50 games. He would be an attractive add or trade target in dynasty leagues if you're looking to acquire future talent.
Feb 4 - 10:26 PM

Teemu Pulkkinen is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers.

The 24-year-old missed the last game before the All-Star break because of an unknown reason, but played in the first game back from the break. He has six goals and 12 points in 29 games this season. Jakub Kindl will join him in the press box.

Riley Sheahan (illness) will rejoin the Red Wings on Thursday.

Sheahan missed Wednesday's contest due to the disease. He has seven goals and 13 points in 49 contests in 2015-16.
