Wings Yank Howard Thursday

News: Jimmy Howard was pulled from Thursday's loss to San Jose after giving up three goals on 10 shots in the first period.
Analysis: The struggles continue for Jimmy Howard, who's got five losses in his last six starts and rightfully deserved a fifth Thursday, though backup Petr Mrazek was stuck with it instead. Over the course of those six games, Howard has given up a brutal 21 goals.

Wings' Howard Getting Start Thursday

News: Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Sharks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard was unexpectedly savaged by the porous Coyotes attack his last time out Tuesday, surrendering five goals on 22 shots to take the overtime loss. The slip-up was even more surprising after he held two of the league's more powerful offenses in the Blues and Lightning to a combined three goals in his preceding two starts. While that type of inconsistency can be frustrating, fantasy owners shouldn't shy away from Howard just yet. He'll still make for a reliable play on most occasions.

Wings' Howard Hammered In OT Loss

News: Jimmy Howard was tagged for five goals on just 22 shots Tuesday in an overtime loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: A brutal outing for Jimmy Howard against one of the league's worst attacks, and it's the second time in his last four starts that he's been blown up, as he gave up seven to the Flyers (another bad team) just 10 days prior. Howard's been stuck with the loss in four of his last five outings, but backup Petr Mrazek's own inconsistencies may help the veteran maintain the status quo.

Wings' Howard Stops 23 In Win

News: Jimmy Howard turned aside 23 of 24 shots in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Blues.
Analysis: It was a nice bounce back outing for Jimmy Howard as he had lost three straight while allowing 12 goals in that span. It was a rough stretch for the 30-year-old, but he appears to have snapped out of the funk as he's surrendered just three goals since being benched for two straight following last week's seven-goal performance. Howard figures to remain the main option in net during the final stretch run of the season.

Red Wings' Howard To Start Tuesday

News: Jimmy Howard will start Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard ended a three-game losing streak Sunday against St. Louis, turning away 23-of-24 shots in a 2-1 overtime victory. He'll draw a more favorable matchup Tuesday evening, against an ice-cold Phoenix team that ranks 29th in goals scored per game (2.0).

Wings' Howard Starts Sunday

News: Jimmy Howard will start in goal Sunday against the Blues, Ansar Khan of MLive Media Group reports.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard receivied a couple nights off following a game against the Flyers in which he allowed seven goals on 36 shots. Despite allowing just two goals on 31 shots to the Lightning on Friday, Howard took the loss again, making it three straight and four of the last five in which he started. He'll get another go again Sunday, looking to snap his skid between the pipes.

Red Wings' Howard Gives Up Two Goals In Loss

News: Jimmy Howard gave up two goals on 31 shots in Friday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard has now lost three straight games, dropping his record to 20-12-9 on the season. While he's been struggling of late, the 30-year-old still owns an impressive .914 save percentage and 2.37 GAA on the season. While Petr Mrazek may be the goalie of the future, Howard is the man in Detroit right now, so keep him rolling.

Red Wings' Howard To Start Friday

News: Jimmy Howard will start Friday's game in Tampa Bay, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Petr Mrazek will handle Thursday's game against the Panthers, with Detroit saving Jimmy Howard for the more difficult matchup. Howard gave up seven goals in his last start, and the Red Wings may want him to get some extra rest down the stretch.

Jimmy Howard

Wings, Howard Embarrassed By Flyers

News: Jimmy Howard was victimized for a whopping seven goals on 36 shots in an embarrassing 7-2 loss to the Flyers on Saturday afternoon.
Analysis: Yuck. The rowdy confines of Wells Fargo Center were far from kind to Jimmy Howard on this day. Aside from wins against Edmonton and an impressive 39-save victory over the Rangers, he's actually been quite bad lately, allowing a combined 14 goals in three starts -- all of which were losses. Backup Petr Mrazek is the confirmed starter for Sunday's tilt against Pittsburgh, so if he's able to put forth a solid performance, look for Howard to potentially ride the pine for a few games given his recent struggles.

Red Wings To Start Howard On Saturday

News: Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Flyers, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Incredibly, the game will be the first Jimmy Howard has ever played in Wells Fargo Center, despite having 329 NHL appearances under his belt. Philadelphia has been a house of horrors for the Red Wings for quite some time, as the Red Wings haven't been able to claim a win in the city since Game 2 of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. Much of those struggles predate both Howard and the current iteration of the Flyers, who appear to have fallen out of the Eastern Conference playoff race due to a recent offensive drought. With that in mind, Howard probably makes for an effective lineup choice Saturday, despite what the Red Wings' history might suggest.

Howard Stops 23 As Wings Lose

News: Jimmy Howard gave up three goals on 26 shots Thursday in a loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: In this battle of Red vs. Blue, Blue came out on top. Jimmy Howard's been pretty inconsistent of late -- he's posted sub-.900 save marks four times in his last five appearances. But his rate stats remain fairly strong, and playing for the Wings often puts goalies in good position to win.

Wings To Start Howard Thursday

News: Jimmy Howard will be in net Thursday against Columbus, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard stopped 36 shots in a comeback win against Edmonton on Monday and will be rewarded with another start. He remains entrenched as the Wings' No. 1 starter, and will put a 20-9-9 record and 2.25 GAA on the line Thursday.

Wings' Howard Sharp In Win

News: Jimmy Howard stopped 36 of 38 shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: After a bad outing in his last start, Jimmy Howard bounced back to allow two goals or less for the third time in his last four starts. Coach Mike Babcock had been rotating between Howard and Jonas Gustavsson over the past nine games, but with the latter experiencing concussion-like symptoms, Howard should be able to reclaim a more regular role in net.

Wings Turn To Howard On Monday

News: Jimmy Howard will start Monday's game against the Oilers, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: With Jonas Gustavsson injured on Sunday, the Wings have recalled Petr Mrazek to back up Jimmy Howard, who relieved Gustavsson in the third period of Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Bruins.

Wings' Howard Allows One In Relief

News: Jimmy Howard entered in the third period of Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Bruins, allowing one goal on seven shots.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard came on in relief of the Jonas Gustavsson after he surrendered four goals in two periods and suffered an unspecified injury. Coach Mike Babcock indicated that Gustavsson's injury was serious enough to recall Petr Mrazek, so Howard should be back in the crease with more regularity after starting just four of the last eight contests.

Wings' Howard Roasted By Flames

News: Jimmy Howard was lit up to the tune of four goals on 23 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Flames on Friday. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.
Analysis: Ouch. Just one game removed from a one-goal, 39-save gem against the Rangers, Jimmy Howard turned in a major stinker in this one. He's still the undisputed started in Motown and owns very good ratios (.917 save percentage, 2.25 GAA), but owners are going to need him to shape up down the stretch to prevent backup Jonas Gustavsson from taking some of his crease time.

Red Wings' Howard Starting Friday

News: Jimmy Howard confirmed that he will start Friday's game against the Flames, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Coming off a fantastic showing against the Rangers on Wednesday, Jimmy Howard draws a Calgary team that played an overtime game Thursday night. Howard hasn't lost a game in regulation since Feb. 16, and he'll be favored to come away with the win Friday night.

Jimmy Howard, G, DET

Jimmy Howard

Wings' Howard Stops 39 In Win

News: Jimmy Howard allowed one goal on 40 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 OT win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard kept his team in the game all night, and was able to squeak out a win in overtime. He's now 19-8-9 on the season, and his 2.20 GAA ranks seventh in the entire league.

Wings' Howard To Play Wednesday

News: Jimmy Howard will be in the net for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard has alternated starts with backup Jonas Gustavsson over the last four games, but he should still be viewed as the Red Wings' unquestioned No. 1 goalie. He's graded out as an above-average netminder this season with a 2.23 GAA and .917 save percentage, but he could struggle to uphold those numbers against a potent Rangers attack that ranks second in the league in scoring.

Wings' Howard Gets Back In Win Column

News: Jimmy Howard stopped 20 of 22 shots Thursday in a 3-2 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard played well, but still needed a third-period surge by the Wings to come back from 2-1 and end up with the victory. Times have been tough for Howard lately, as he lost a month to injury and has won just two times in six starts since returning.

Jimmy Howard, G, DET Wings' Howard To Start Thursday

Jimmy Howard

Wings' Howard To Start Thursday

News: Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Sharks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Backup Jonas Gustavsson received the start in goal for the Red Wings' previous game against the Kings, so it's not surprising that coach Mike Babcock will go back to Jimmy Howard for Thursday's match. Over 13 career outings against the Sharks, Howard has had limited success, going 3-6-4 with a 2.79 GAA and .910 save percentage.

Wings' Howard Takes Shootout Loss

News: Jimmy Howard gave up three goals on 25 shots before falling 4-3 in the shootout to Anaheim on Monday.
Analysis: The Jimmy hasn't exactly been a force to be reckoned with since returning on Feb. 11 from a groin injury, as he's picked up just one win on five starts. Jimmy Howard's typically a nice fantasy option as the undisputed starter on a very good Detroit squad competing for the top spot in the Atlantic Division, but he'll certainly need to be better than the 11 goals he's coughed up over the last three contests. Look for the American netminder to continue to work out the kinks as Detroit's road trip continues this week against L.A., San Jose and Nashville.

Wings' Howard To Start Monday

News: Jimmy Howard will start in net Monday against the Ducks, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jimmy Howard struggled in his last outing and was pulled after allowing six goals on 32 shots to the Stars. Despite the outing, he still remains the clear top goaltender ahead of Jonas Gustavsson, and he will be in the crease once again Monday.

Wings' Howard Pulled Against Dallas

News: Jimmy Howard was pulled Saturday against Dallas after giving up six goals on 32 shots.
Analysis: It was a rough night for Jimmy Howard, but he didn't get credited with a loss, as Jonas Gustavsson entered the game late in regulation and helped the Wings comeback and beat the Stars 7-6 in overtime. Howard's been pretty up-and-down of late, having allowed at least four goals in three of his last 10 outings. He now owns a 17-8-8 record on the season with a .918 save percentage and 2.22 GAA. He boast impressive rate stats, so despite some recent inconsistency, Howard remains one of the better fantasy tendies around.

Wings' Howard In Net Saturday

News: Jimmy Howard will get the start between the pipes Saturday against the Stars, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Saturday will mark Jimmy Howard's fourth consecutive start in net for the Red Wings. He's been solid this season, going 17-8-8 with a 2.10 GAA and a .921 save percentage through 36 games with Detroit this year. However, he faces an unfavorable matchup on Saturday, as Dallas averages 3.09 goals scored per game, good for fourth best in the NHL.
