  • Filppula has struggled to a minus-42 rating through 70 games with the Red Wings this season. Only Andreas Athanasiou, whom the Red Wings traded to the Oilers at the deadline, has a worse rating than Filppula based on his minus-46 mark. However, while it's clear that the second-line center is routinely getting burned in transition, recent performances consisting of three and four blocked shots apiece prove that Filppula is not a total slouch defensively. Offensively, the Finn has six goals and 15 helpers on the year.

  • Filppula scored his sixth goal of the season in a 4-1 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday. The veteran's power-play marker in the third period spoiled Cory Schneider's shutout bid, but it was the only goal Detroit scored Tuesday. Filppula, with 21 points in 64 games, remains a fringe fantasy asset and is only relevant in deeper formats.

  • Filppula registered an assist Tuesday in a 4-3 win over the Canadiens. Detroit committed three minor penalties, so it wasn't a major surprise to see Filppula -- a shorthanded specialist -- on the ice a bit longer than usual. The soon-to-be 36-year-old saw 18:01 of ice time, with his third-period apple helping the Wings overcome a 3-1 deficit to the delight of the home crowd. Filppula now has five goals and 15 helpers through 61 games this season.

  • Filppula, who was playing in his 1,000th NHL contest, came up empty on his lone shot in a 1-0 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. The Red Wings couldn't solve Henrik Lundqvist, as the legendary backstop worked his first shutout in two seasons. Filppula snapped a two-game point streak with the lackluster effort. His next chance to get back on track will arrive Monday when the Wings play host to the Flyers.

  • Filppula registered a secondary assist on the power play in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild. Filppula snapped a six-game point drought with his first-period feed, resulting in a goal for rookie phenom Filip Zadina. The former is deployed on the man advantage and penalty kill, though Filppula has just four special teams points through 50 games this season.
