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.

Didn't look too serious. It happened with 18:22 left in the third. Lapierre's shot went under Howard's blocker and got his fingers.

If it's 2 games, we can forfeit those and still be in pretty good position to keep pace. No worries.

Im not totally sold on numbers when it come to backup goalies. They come in when games are usually already over (MTL) and the mindset of a team playing in front is different. The key to a good backup goalie is to keep you in games by make key saves, not making every save. The team needs to play better.

Will be a good rest for Jimmy anyway on an otherwise easy part of the sched.

Guys if it is a broken finnger it will likely be 2 weeks or so that he is out. A couple seasons ago Stuart got a broken finger and missed about 3 weeks of action. The Wings are not going to take a chance at playing Howard until his finger is healed, and I do not blame them. Conks will be fine in net as long as the Wings continue to play like they did last night.

This will be a good opportunity for the team to step up their support of Conks & get him on track.

With reports of Malts scouting Buffalo for two straight games, maybe Kenny will pick up Miller to back Jimmy up the rest of the way if Conks can't get it going? :ph34r:

Would definitely depend on severity of the break, which finger, etc. But yes, 2 games is hyper optimistic at this point. In Ty we shall trust.

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

Heck, "buddy tape" it and send Howie back out there! :)

There's your problem. :lol:

For what it's worth, the Red Wings twitter feed just reiterated that at the moment it's only "2 games and reevaluated".

I'd imagine that if he has a broken finger, there's a fair amount of swelling going on at the moment. They probably are waiting for the swelling to go down, and then evaluate from there.

The bright side: he finished the game last night despite breaking it mid-game.
The wings are in 1st place overall, which is the most ideal position to be in when a goalie gets injured, instead of say 5th place or 9th place etc.

The team knows that it's Conklin behind them now. No more Howie to the rescue, no Howie to win shootouts for us. If that's not incentive to give it your very best then I don't know to tell you.

Howie could use the rest anyways, no worries here.

The important thing here is that he's still got a shot at breaking 48 wins. :cool:

I guess that's one way to give Jimmy a rest. I really hope when they come back to Detroit they don't take a closer look and discover he's actually suffered twelve consecutive concussions or something horrifying like that.

Conks has a great opportunity here to prove he's still capable enough to be relied on when needed. Detroit in front of him have to play just as hard too. They tend to make times like these an excuse to play poorly. The boys are playing so well right now I though, hope they can keep finding the motivation to dominate. If they do, Conks will be fine IMO

Hope to see Jimmy back between the pipes sooner than later. He has been awesome this season. Hopefully Ty can step up.

This. Happens to me all the time, but inline pucks are not nearly as damaging.
I'm offended that you're offended.
