Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard plans to start Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets after he was pulled from the team's previous game with blurry vision.

Howard left in the first period of Tuesday night's 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville after giving up two goals on seven shots.

In other lineup news, forward Jan Mursak is set to play for the first time since opening night, when he injured his collarbone. Defenseman Kent Huskins is also set to replace Jakub Kindl on the blue line.

The projected lineup for Detroit:

Valtteri Filppula - Henrik Zetterberg - Damien Brunner

Daniel Cleary - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader

Tomas Tatar - Joakim Andersson - Jan Mursak

Drew Miller - Cory Emmerton - Jordin Tootoo

Niklas Kronwall - Brian Lashoff

Jonathan Ericsson - Ian White

Kent Huskins - Kyle Quincey
