Howard Sits Vs B’s With Hand Injury
Former UMaine goalie Jimmy Howard did not play in Monday's win against the Bruins. It was decided just before gametime that Jonas Gustavsson would get the start because of a hand injury to Howard.
According to Wings GM Ken Holland, Howard bruised his catching glove hand in Detroit's game on Saturday. It is not a serious injury and Holland said Howard could be back for their next game.
Howard had played in all five games before Monday's 3-2 win over the B's.
