Jared Coreau On His Opportunity In Detroit

"There were definitely some doubts," Coreau said. "But one thing my mother always told me -- I think it's very true -- it's not how many times we succeed. It's how many times we fail and get up and keep moving forward. So that was a year of some mistakes and some failures. I did my best to learn from them."...

"With the magnitude of the opportunity, it's fairly easy [to keep a narrow focus]," Coreau said. "This is the level that everyone works to get to."

Wings Have Been Underachieving Due To Injuries According To Steve Ott

“This All-Star break can’t come quick enough,” Ott said of the weekend ahead. “Try to collect some points in the last couple games here and maybe take a little bit of break, reset everybody here and, hopefully, come back a strong, healthy team.

“I don’t care what team you are in the league, if you lose some of guys that we lost in here, it would really damper a team. That’s kind of the story of this season. The underachieving part is, obviously, due to injury, I think, more than anything. Now you’re seeing a team that continues to get healthier and a team that continues to rise up.”

George Sipple has more from Ott at the Detroit Free Press.

Tomas Jurco On Returning To The Lineup On Tuesday

from George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press,

“Working hard to stay in good shape,” Jurco said today. “I feel good. I’m excited for tomorrow. I hope I’m going to be playing some decent minutes and hope it is going to go my way.”...

“All I’m waiting (on) is one lucky bounce,” Jurco said. “Hopefully, it’s going to turn around. That’s what I need.”

Jurco acknowledged he has been frustrated by the lack of playing time. When he has played, he averages 10:23 of ice time.

“That’s part of the game,” he said. “I have to take it. I can’t do anything about it. Just work hard and, hopefully, if I play some decent minutes tomorrow, I can do something.”
