Coreau has appeared in 13 games during his first NHL season, posting a 5-3-3 record, 3.27 goals-against average, 0.893 save percentage and a team-best two shutouts. The Perth, Ontario, native made his NHL debut on Dec. 3 at Pittsburgh and earned his first NHL win in his second career start on Dec. 23 at Florida. The victory kicked off a stretch of eight consecutive decisions for Coreau without a regulation loss (5-0-3), including a season-high 45 saves on Jan. 24 at Boston. Coreau has also made 17 appearances for the Griffins this season and ranked among the league's top goalies at the time of his call-up with 11 wins (T3rd), a 2.18 goals-against average (T10th) and a 0.924 save percentage (T9th).

DETROIT - Brendan Smith knows that hockey is a business and he also knows he's an unrestricted free agent after this season.

So with the March 1 trade deadline approaching, it would be understandable if Smith were concerned about his future.

Wings take advantage of Washington team coming off a bye

by Arthur J. Regner @ArthurJRegner /

DETROIT -- If the Red Wings have had a mantra the last few years, it is "Start on time." It is something that coaches and players have harped upon, Detroit's inability to play a complete 60-minute hockey game.

Far too many times the Wings have surrendered the first goal and have found themselves playing from behind in the first period. Entering Saturday afternoon's game against the Capitals, the Wings were 10-6-6 in games where they scored first this season.
