Jimmy Howard stopped 25 of 26 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It was just Howard's second victory in his last 11 games. The win also put an end to his three-game losing streak. Howard gave up the game's first goal less than two minutes into the opening period, but he managed to shut the door the rest of the way. The Red Wings goalie now owns a 10-9-6 record with a 2.83 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage this season. He can't really be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.

David Booth will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against Toronto.

Booth has suited up in just nine games this season. He has three goals and one assist during that span. Xavier Ouellet will also watch the game from the press box. Neither player will have any fantasy value going forward.

Andreas Athanasiou intends to shoot more often.

"I think I pass up a lot of shots," Athanasiou said before Wednesday's 3-2 OT loss to Boston. "It's something I'm thinking about, not passing up some opportunities — in games, if I see a pass, I always want to try to make it. Sometimes you have to shoot the puck, especially when they aren't going in. You want to overshoot it. I just have to keep bringing that speed element and skill set. I know that I can produce opportunities for the team when I am out there." He had two shots on target against the Bruins, but still hasn't scored a goal since Nov. 19 and he has just two assists during that 10-game span. Athanasiou had five markers in his first 11 games.
Dec 14 - 9:05 AM

Tomas Tatar found the back of the net in Wednesday's 3-2 loss in overtime to Boston.

Tatar opened the scoring in the second period with a power-play marker from Niklas Kronwall and Henrik Zetterberg. He has nine goals and 14 points through 31 contests this campaign.
Dec 14 - 8:58 AM

Jimmy Howard allowed three goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins.

The Red Wings were up 2-1 with under two minutes remaining in regulation, but they surrendered the game-tying goal to David Pastrnak. Bruins forward Brad Marchand then added the game-winner just 35 seconds into OT. The loss drops Howard's record to 9-9-6 on the season. The Red Wings netminder has just one victory in his last 10 outings. He'll head into his next start with a 2.91 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
Dec 14 - 12:10 AM

Dylan Larkin scored a shorthanded goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Red Wings forward snapped a 10-game goalless drought in the process. Larkin beat Boston's Tuukka Rask with a backhander on a breakaway with under nine minutes remaining in regulation to give Detroit a 2-1 lead at the time. Unfortunately for the Red Wings, they allowed the Bruins to tie the game late in the third before they eventually lost in overtime. Larkin now has five goals and 24 points in 31 games this season.

Danny DeKeyser has struggled since he returned to the lineup from an ankle injury.

In 10 games, DeKeyser has no points and a minus-11 rating. "I think it's been taking me a little bit to get going to where I want to be," he said. "I felt good (in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss to Florida), I thought my legs were better, I was moving a bit better on the ice, felt stronger. At the same time, I was out six weeks, so it's going to take a little bit to come back from that." DeKeyser believes his game will turn around soon though because he is feeling better.
