Following up @aaronward_nhl and news on Jimmy Howard injury. It's suspected Howard suffered a broken finger.

Probably happened on that "equipment problem" stoppage he had, he looked somewhat uncomfortable during that. Maybe just taped it up or something. Regardless, I am hoping this is a quick healing process, not really what we need.

Details to come but Joey has been called up.

Per Darren Dreger.

@DarrenDreger: Following up @aaronward_nhl and news on Jimmy Howard injury. It's suspected Howard suffered a broken finger. #TSN

We all saw Van Zant take a look at Howard on the bench quickly last night. This is what must have happened.





With the way Conks has been playing... The Wings could be in serious trouble if Jimmy is affected by this injury to the extent of missing time or playing worse. This is too bad because his glove has been sick this year.

Will the Wings make a trade for a tender now? Can the Wings maintain their place on top of the league without a solid goaltender? Will Jimmy be good to go for the playoffs? Will our younger viewers get this Soap reference?

EDIT: updates.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Well, good luck, Conks. Show us what you've got. Better this happens now than in April.

Sucks, but if it's just a broken finger then he shouldn't miss too much time. Conklin has been playing better of late, and Howard could use the break so he has something left in the tank come playoff time. Favorable schedule for the next 2 weeks, next big test is likely Nashville at home on the 17th, hopefully Jimmy can be back by then.

Damn. Well that sucks.

But you know this could be good for Conks. The team really, really needs him to be good now.

I think youre a little too hard on conks right now. Hes been playing pretty well lately besides the games in NYI and MTL when his team didnt show up. Big wins in chicago and in dallas. Im not worried about Conks play.

edit: plus look at our schedule the next 2 weeks, which is about how long the finger will take to heal. 7 games, 5 at home. only good teams we play are philly (struggling lately) and NSH.

Were going to be OK

Even if Conks sucks (he's been better) MacDonald is still reliable.

I'm still not sold that Conks is "back". He's performed better recently, but his record and stats still give me the heebie-jeebies: 3-5-0 (10GP), 3.20 GAA, .886 SV%

And that's with one shutout in the mix too.

I'm not panicking though, honestly. Our defense just needs to play even better in front of him. No odd-man rushes, no lazy line changes, etc.

Well, if they splint it up right 6-8 weeks to heal. Then probably still splinted. Should be good by playoffs.

Perhaps some good news here?

The press release says two GAMES, not two WEEKS.

Well, maybe only two games...

https://twitter.com/#!/DetroitRedWings/status/165450903636295680

Howard will miss the next two games of the Wings four-game road trip and will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Detroit on Tuesday.


If it truly is only two games, then it's not too big a deal. Conks to get work in Edmonton and in Phoenix. After that, the next game is back home against Edmonton, and it's not on a back to back, so it still gives a little time for Jimmy to heal.

Pretty certain it happened in the 3rd and he played the rest of the game so I am guessing he will get a little healing time and be right back out there. Ty will step it up, no panic here.

I hope Babcock actually learns something from this....like the fact that you need to play your back up more often so the team can feel confident in front of him. I'm sure Ty can handle it but I'm not sure how the team feels with him in net. I hope Howard isn't out too long, but this the reason I do not like the way Babs has been handling the goalie situation last couple of seasons. If he doesn't have faith in the guys we have he needs to get management to work on finding someone.

Looking forward to seeing Conklin put a good effort in the upcoming games.

Thanks Offsides
