Howard (knee) isn’t worried he’ll be out long

1 Comment

Jimmy Howard doesn’t seem too worried about the knee he tweaked yesterday at practice.

“I don’t think I’m that concerned about it,” the Red Wings’ sidelined starting goalie said Thursday in Tampa Bay, per MLive.com “I don’t think it’s going to be anything over the top where I’m going to be out a long time.”

But he won’t know for sure until he gets an MRI tomorrow.

Jonas Gustavsson is expected to get the start tonight versus the Lightning. Petr Mrazek has been called up from the AHL to back up.

Howard is 6-8-7 with a .910 save percentage.
