Is Jimmy Howard hurt?

Rate this topic

21 posts in this topic

I read on MLive that Jimmy is fighting an injury and they called up McCollum just in case. They talked as if it was common knowledge that Jimmy was hurt.

Does anyone have any more info on this?

I think this is a stupid question. At this point in the season EVERYONE is hurt or sore. Now does he have something major? Idk he didn't look like it.

So who is backing up Petr in Grand Rapids?

Do they still have Pearce? I think he's still around.

I don't care if he is hurt or not. He is playing Game 7. An injured Howard is still probably better than the other options.

Pearce is the backup in Grand Rapids



Now that I think about it, the Griffins don't start the 2nd round until Wednesday.

Griffins have already played 2 games in round 2

Western Conference Semifinal

TORONTO vs. GRAND RAPIDS

series tied 1 - 1

Game 1 - Fri May 10 7:00 PM Grand Rapids 7, TORONTO 0

Game 2 - Sat May 11 3:00 PM TORONTO 4, Grand Rapids 2

Game 3 - Wed May 15 7:00 PM Toronto at Grand Rapids

Game 4 - Fri May 17 7:00 PM Toronto at Grand Rapids

Game 5 - Sat May 18 7:00 PM Toronto at Grand Rapids

Game 6 - Tue May 21 7:00 PM * Grand Rapids at Toronto

Game 7 - Wed May 22 7:00 PM * Grand Rapids at Toronto

Logic would say if Howard is hurt Monster starts and McCallum is the backup I would think no?

If that we're the case I'd say Anaheim wins game 7 I have very little confidence in Gufstason. Or care to spell his name right.

Last I saw, the move was to have Monster & McCollum on the ice for practice to limit the chances of anything happening to Jimmy.

McCollum was listed in the boxscore on nhl.com last night as being a healthy scratch...along with the goalie we signed from NMU

That makes total sense.

No Monster ... sorry but he is way too inconsistent and fragile. Just checked, we got him signed for another year. :eh:

If you listened to the commentary on FSN, they keep Jimmy off the ice when it's humid so he doesn't get dehydrated.

That's why he didn't practice the other day in D. Perhaps the weather and crappy ice in Anaheim are the reason.
