Red Wings turning to Jared Coreau versus the Kings

Detroit Red Wings goalie Jared Coreau will be in goal versus the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

What It Means:

Coreau has had a tough go of it in his first four NHL games. He owns a 3.43 goals against average and a .889 save percentage with only one quality start. He gets to face an average Kings squad on Thursday who owns a 2-3-0 in their last five games but has managed to score only 1.8 goals per contest during the last two weeks.

Our models don't like Coreau's chances on Thursday night, as he is projected to be the worst goalie option on a seven-game slate, with 2.8 goals allowed, 24.3 saves, and only a 35.0 percent chance of bringing home the win.
