Looks as if Ozzie's back now, according to Official Detroit Red Wings on Facebook.

Doesn't say if Joey's down again which I assume he is, or when he's going to be really ready for action.

@Detroit Red Wings The Red Wings have activated goaltender Chris Osgood and reassigned goaltender Joey MacDonald to Grand Rapids.

Posted Image Good deal. A capable backup to give Howie the rest he needs.

Looking good after a few good results! A fresh goalie and one who will get some rest

Safe to assume he'll be playing Wednesday or Thursday?

Assuming the Wings usual goalie setup for back to backs, it will be Howie on Wednesday and Ozzie on Thursday.


If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

Very good news, I'm hoping this gives Osgood a real fresh mindframe coming back into the season. Already hit his 400 win mark, fixed his pain that he overcame and played with and had time to practice for awhile now. He's very capable of being one of the best when you need him, I hope he comes back swinging!

I'm always happy to see positive articles about him. Of course this is pretty much what we all know but still...


My link

The Red Wings are virtually back to full health now and the guy most excited about their latest development might be Jimmy Howard. Detroit activated goalie Chris Osgood from injured reserve after Osgood missed the last few weeks recovering from sports hernia surgery.

With Osgood back, Joey MacDonald heads back to the AHL but more importantly Osgood provides coach Mike Babcock with a more viable option to give Howard a rest heading into the playoffs. Ideally Osgood gives the Red Wings a better chance to win games than MacDonald did and before suffering from the hernia, Osgood had been playing reasonably well compared to last season. With a 2.77 goals against average and a .903 save percentage his numbers weren’t all that different from Howard’s.

Making sure that Howard is energized for the postseason could be a priority for the Wings.Detroit has an eight point lead on Chicago in the Central Division and trail Vancouver by nine points for the top spot in the Western Conference while staying ahead of San Jose for the two seed by four points. Provided they can keep the Blackhawks and Sharks far enough in their rear view mirror and not eke any closer to the Canucks, Detroit would essentially be staying warm for the playoffs at that point.

With Osgood back in the fold, expect to see him get his fair share of action in Detroit’s final 13 games. The Wings have two sets of back-to-back game days (March 16-17, April 2-3) so you’d think that Osgood at least has two guaranteed starts there in that mix.

It's funny as disappointed as I've been with him in the recent past(though the little he has played this season has been much better), I still get excited to hear he's coming back. Also...13 games left? damn, playoffs are coming up quick.

I think Babcock HAS to run a 50-50 split going into the playoffs. We don't want a tired Howard and we don't want a rusty Ozzie trying to salvage the playoffs if Howard falters.

With 13 games left I want to see 7 for Howard and 6 for Ozzie.
