Red Wings' Alex Lyon: Tending twine Tuesday
Lyon will defend the road cage against the Sabres on Tuesday, Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Lyon is riding a three-game winning streak during which he has allowed just two goals on 89 shots while picking up one shutout. With the Red Wings continuing to carry three backstops on the 23-man roster, there will be limited opportunities for Lyon to start, even with his impressive run of performances.... See More ...

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Delivers shorthanded apple
Rasmussen tallied a shorthanded assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
Rasmussen nearly had a shorthanded goal after he intercepted the puck and stormed toward the cage in the first period, but it went down as an assist after his teammate, Christian Fischer, cleaned up the play with a backhand sweep. Early results show that Rasmussen has been a laggard offensively for a Red Wings team that leads the Atlantic Division with 86 total goals. He's produced two goals, five assists and a plus-6 rating through 23 games. Of course, Detroit retooled approximately half of its roster in the offseason, so Rasmussen might just need some extra time to see where he fits in.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Pots sixth goal
Veleno opened the scoring in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
Veleno was in perfect position for his goal once Lucas Raymond's shot pinballed off the pad of goaltender Jake Allen. While Veleno hasn't had more than three shots in a given contest, he's been accurate with his attempts, managing six goals through 23 games and turning in a remarkable 22.2 shooting percentage. He's registered only three helpers, but it's safe to say that overall, Veleno is currently exceeding the value of the $825,000 contract extension that he signed ahead of this season.... See More ...

Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Two points in OT thriller
Sprong supplied a 5-on-5 goal and a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
Sprong has been incredibly efficient in a bottom-six role, as evidenced by him collecting six goals and 10 assists through 23 games. Fantasy managers shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the sneaky utility winger is averaging 1:59 of ice time on the power play, during which he's collected four helpers. Best of all, Sprong is on pace to eclipse the career-high 46 points that he supplied for the young Kraken franchise last season.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Lucas Raymond: Fiery effort in OT win
Raymond recorded an assist to complement a season-high six shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
While Raymond couldn't get any shots to fall, his assist on the game's first goal proved to be critical, as the Wings needed every bit of offense in the bank after coughing up a 3-0 lead. Despite Raymond providing five goals and 11 assists over the last month, the burgeoning winger suddenly has a slippery grip on the top-line role since future Hall of Famer Patrick Kane (hip) put pen to paper on a one-year deal....

Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Finds twine shorthanded
Fischer surfaced with a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
Fischer poked the puck into the cage after goalie Jake Allen lost track of it on the heels of a Michael Rasmussen breakaway attempt. The Chicago native is up to two goals and four assists through 22 games. The Wings aren't asking much of Fischer in his debut season with the Original Six club; he's averaging 11 minutes of ice time, including 0:32 on the penalty kill, as a fourth-line forward....

Red Wings' Moritz Seider: Two apples as Wings hang on
Seider provided two assists, including a power-play helper, in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
Seider is on a three-game point streak comprised of a goal and three helpers; this also includes a power-play point in each contest. The German defenseman plays every game like it's his last, committing to 46 hits and 54 blocked shots through 23 games, but Seider is durable, as he's yet to miss a contest in his young career....

Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Back at it with clutch apple
Larkin (personal) returned to the lineup Saturday, adding an assist in a 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
The captain provided the key assist to defenseman Jake Walman in overtime. Larkin has motored his way to eight goals and 14 assists through 21 contests, and that includes 13 man-advantage points. His rest-of-season projection gets a bump following Detroit's acquisition of Patrick Kane (hip), a future Hall of Famer who could join Larkin on the top line later this week.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Alex DeBrincat: Gets 200th NHL goal
DeBrincat had a goal and an assist Saturday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.
The goal was his 200th of his career. It came on the power play early in the second period, when he set up below the left circle and one-timed a shot between Jake Allen's pads to finish off a three-way passing play. DeBrincat (473 games) became the fourth active U.S.-born player to score 200 goals in fewer than 500 games, joining Auston Matthews of the Maple Leafs (338 games), Kyle Connor of the Jets (429) and Jake Guentzel of the Penguins (463)....

Red Wings' Ville Husso: Wobbles but gets win
Husso made 26 saves Saturday in a 5-4 overtime win over Montreal.
Husso wasn't great, but he was still good enough for the win. The Wings collapsed in front of him in the third and allowed the Habs back into the game after leading 4-2 heading into that frame. Husso currently has an 8-4-1 record with a 3.48 GAA and an .891 save percentage through 13 starts this season. He has now won three of his past four starts, though he hasn't allowed fewer than two goals in any game this season.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Jake Walman: Nets winner in OT
Walman had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Montreal.
He scored 54 seconds into overtime when he sent a snap shot past Jake Allen's glove. Walman has four points (one goal, three assists) in his last two games, and five points in his past four appearances. He's warming up right now and may be a decent scoop off the waiver wire if you need short-term help.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Justin Holl: Ready to return Saturday
Holl (undisclosed) is good to return Saturday versus Montreal, per the NHL media site.
Holl missed Thursday's 5-1 loss to Chicago because of the injury. He has three assists, 14 PIM, 16 hits and 15 blocks in 17 contests this season. Holl's return is expected to result in Olli Maatta serving as a healthy scratch Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Ville Husso: Starting vs. Montreal
Husso will guard the road cage Saturday against the Canadiens, Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Husso has played well of late, posting a .926 save percentage over his last two starts to improve to 7-4-1 with a 3.44 GAA and .892 save percentage overall. He'll face a Canadiens team that's averaging 2.7 goals per game this season.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Jonatan Berggren: Back in AHL
Berggren was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Friday.
Berggren played a pair of games this week, picking up an assist which was his first point of the season in four NHL games. Berggren has played well at the AHL level, finding the back of the net on four occasions while adding seven assists in 11 games. He could have trouble returning to the Red Wings, as Patrick Kane should join the lineup next week.... See More ... See Less
Red Wings' Jake Walman: Pockets two helpers Thursday
Walman recorded two assists, one shorthanded, in Thursday's 5-1 win over Chicago.
Both points came in the first period as Detroit grabbed an early lead and never looked back. Walman's last multi-point performance came in the final game of October, but he's provided steady all-around production off the Wings' blue line this season that includes 59 blocked shots -- tied for seventh in the NHL....

Red Wings' Lucas Raymond: Two helpers in Thursday's win
Raymond produced two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 5-1 win over Chicago.
Both helpers came in the second period as Detroit pulled away. It was a strong response from Raymond after he saw a six-game point streak snapped Wednesday against the Rangers, and on the season the third-year winger is up to eight goals and 18 points in 22 contests as he puts his sophomore slump behind him....
