Howard

Jimmy Howard is starting tonight and he's looking to bounce back
from Wednesday's 3-2 loss in Calgary.


“It's not the first time I've made a mistake out there, it most definitely won't be the last. This game is full of making mistakes, it's how you bounce back.”
-Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

“After the other night in Calgary someone told me that Howard said, 'That's on me'...that's not on him, but that's what leadership is.”
- Mike Babcock told Ansar Khan

Jordin Tootoo will return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch Wednesday.

Get Off to a Fast Start
- The Red Wings finished well against Calgary applying all kinds of pressure and had a chance to tie it with seconds left. They'll need to dictate the play early against the Canucks.

Generate Offense - Spend time in the offensive zone. Cycle well, get second and third opportunities, and have that much needed net front presence.

Play With Desperation - Time is running out; there's only 5 games left. Detroit needs to win games, plain and simple. A lot is on the line and they have to come out and play like there is no tomorrow. Compete hard and play to win.

After little help from the hockey gods in Calgary on Wednesday, the Wings will head to Vancouver with 2 huge points on the line. Detroit has had the Canucks' number this year, winning 8-3 at The Joe in February, then a 5-2 trouncing in B.C. last month. Tonight, the Wings will go for the trifecta in hopes of reclaiming the eight seed in the West.
