Ken Holland said ultrasound confirmed Howard has slight groin tear; will miss 2-4 weeks.
Howard will be out until late-January to mid-February, which was basically the best case scenario for the Red Wings. When Howie was stretchered off of the ice, it looked as if he would miss much longer. However, groin injuries with goalies can be very difficult to manage, so the Red Wings will be extremely careful with Howard.
Howard will be out 2-4 weeks with a slight groin tear.
Howard had an MRI on Sunday that revealed a slight groin tear. He will have an ultrasound on Monday to see the extent of the damage. Howard will be out until at least late-January, possible into February and beyond. The Red Wings will now turn to Petr Mrazek as their starter.
The Red Wings have placed Jimmy Howard (groin) on injured reserve.
Howard underwent an MRI on Sunday, but the Red Wings placed him on IR before the results of the MRI were even revealed. He will miss at least the next seven days, but based on how the injury looked, expect him to be out much longer than that. Petr Mrazek has been elevated to the Red Wings starter with Howard out.
Howard had to be stretchered off of the ice after suffering a groin injury less than two minutes into Saturday’s loss to the Capitals. He will head back to Detroit to undergo tests to determine the severity of his injury. Petr Mrazek will serve as the Red Wings’ starter and another goalie will have to be recalled to back him up with Jonas Gustavsson still out with a shoulder injury.
Howard allowed two goals on 23 shots in the Red Wings win in Edmonton on Tuesday. He was given Wednesday night off, but he will be back between the pipes tonight in Washington. He has won three of five with a 2.19 GAA and .919 SV%.
Howard surrendered two goals on 22 shots in the Red Wings’ 4-1 loss to the Canucks on Saturday. It was tight game throughout, but two empty netters made it look closer than it was. He has alternated wins and losses in his last five and that is likely to continue as he gets the nod vs. the Oilers.
Howard gets the nod between the pipes for the Red Wings.
Howard stopped 12 of 13 shots in the Red Wings win over the Devils on Wednesday. It was about as easy of a night as you could have, but Howard will take it as he notched his 15th win of the season. Despite posting a GAA under 2.00 (1.98) in December, a lack of offence led to a 4-2-3 record for Howie.
Howard stopped 40 of 44 shots in the Red Wings lost to the Bruins on Monday. Howard has just one win in his last six starts despite posting a 2.15 GAA and .938 SV%. He should make for a great start tonight with the low-scoring Devils in town.
Howard stopped 31 of 33 shots in the Red Wings overtime win over the Senators on Saturday. It was a great outing for Howard who had gone 0-3-1 in his previous four games. Tonight he will face a shorthanded Bruins squad for the third time this season—he is 1-0-1 with a 1.44 GAA and .946 SV% in the first two meetings.
Howard stopped eight of nine shots before departing last Friday’s game with a groin injury. Despite posting a 1.12 GAA and .952 SV% in his last four games, he lost all four of those games. Tonight, he will face the Senators—he is 1-1-0 with 2.51 GAA and .912 SV% against Ottawa this year.
Howard (groin) unlikely to be available on Tuesday.
Howard skated on Monday, but left practice a bit early, which suggests that he won’t be ready for Tuesday’s game vs. the Sabres. With the easy matchup and three days off after, it would seem to make sense to give Petr Mrazek another start and give Howard a few more days to get to 100 percent.
Howard is day-to-day with a groin injury; possible for Tuesday.
Howard will miss Sunday’s game with a groin injury that he suffered on Friday vs. the Islanders. He could return to practice on Monday and start on Tuesday, but the more likely scenario is that the Red Wings let him rest in Saturday.
Howard left Friday’s game with a lower-body injury and is day-to-day.
Howard stopped eight of nine shots before leaving Friday’s game with a lower-body injury; he did not return. Petr Mrazek finished the game and becomes the Red Wings starter for the time being. Thomas McCollum has been recalled to serve as Mrazek’s backup. Howie’s injury does not sound serious, so expect him back by the end of the Holliday break at the latest.
Howard turned aside all 29 shots that he faced in Tuesday’s 1-0 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets. Despite the loss, Howie was credited with his second shutout of the season. Despite losing three in a row, Howard has been great as of late. He has posted a 2-1-3 record with a 1.78 GAA and .930 SV% in December.
