Good for Howard to be sent down, and Joey Mac to be brought up. Jimmy needs to play in GR and get some more games in down there.

Steve Yzerman(groin) and Manny Legace(sprained left knee) were on the ice briefly Monday but didn't practice
When Legace returns, the No. 1 job won't be handed to him. As long as Chris Osgood keeps winning, and improving, he'll have the job, just as Legace owned it earlier.
"He'll (Legace) get a start, and if he plays good, he'll continue to play, no different than Ozzie," Babcock said. "Give Ozzie credit, he won a big game for us (at Tampa Bay). Now, it's up to him to keep improving.

"He sits next to Steve in that locker room for a reason -- because we wanted him to internalize some of those things. Steve was able to will this organization to unbelievable years with the three Stanley Cups, and now it's up to someone else. Z has that kind of will and that work ethic and that passion to be the best. It's going to be his time." -- Coach Mike Babcock
