Insight: Howard wound up missing three games with a knee injury. The 29-year-old has been streaky this year (9-12-8, .916 SV%, 2.64 GAA) and isn't necessarily a must-start. If you think you can do better, it's okay to leave Howard on the bench.

Over his last four games, the Red Wings have forced him to face at leat 45 SOG three times, and Howard has responded with two games with 44 saves and Thursday's 47-save job.
 
1/16/2014 12:18:00 PM

Description: Red Wings GM Ken Holland wouldn't rule out goalie Jimmy Howard (knee) returning before the end of 2013, according to mlive.com.
Insight: Howard suffered a sprained left MCL last week. "I wouldn’t rule out (his return) on our road trip to Florida-Nashville (Dec. 28-30)," Holland said. "Even if he’s ready to go we won’t play him on the 28th because he’s going to need some practice time. But I would think the 30th, the Winter Classic (Jan. 1) or the 4th in Dallas he’ll be in the net, barring a setback."

Description: Detroit netminder Jimmy Howard hurt his knee at practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Associated Press

11/29/2013 9:44:00 PM
Description: Wings goalie Jimmy Howard produced his second shutout of the season on Friday.
Insight: It was a nice bounceback effort for Howard (29 saves) after losing seven in a row. It might take more than one game for Howard to get back into the good graces of fantasy owners but at least it's a start.
 
Cold11/26/2013 7:48:00 PM
Description: Detroit coach Mike Babcock stood behind Jimmy Howard as his No. 1 goaltender on Tuesday, according to detroitnews.com. "Let's be clear, we'll go as far as Howie takes us," Babcock said. "He's an elite goalie who it hasn't gone as good as he'd like to lately. We'll give him a breather to work with Jimmy (Bedard, Red Wings goaltender coach)."
Insight: Backup Jonas Gustavsson, who is 5-0-1 with a 2.35 GAA and a .926 SV%, will start Wednesday against the Bruins. Howard hasn't won in his last seven starts and is 5-7-6 with a 2.72 GAA and a .908 SV%. He has his difficulties early last season as well before finishing strong, so he's worth holding.
 
10/17/2013 2:15:00 PM
Description: Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard will serve as the backup netminder for Thursday's game against Colorado.
Insight: Backup Jonas Gustavsson is 2-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .955 SV% so the team can afford to let Howard (bruised hand) get completely healthy. Gustavsson will make his third start on Thursday.
