Howard recalled; Dom out, Kronwall to IR
Dominik Hasek is day-to-day with minor inflammation of his hip flexor. Chris Osgood and Howard are expected to dress for Tuesday night’s contest at Nashville ( 8 p.m. ET on FSN Detroit and 97.1 FM The Ticket).
Hasek, who has a 19-7-3 record, also missed three games earlier this season with a sore hip.
Howard has appeared in 39 games this year for the Griffins, compiling a 17-19-2 record with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage. He was named the AHL Goaltender of the Month for December when he posted a 1.72 GAA, .939 save percentage and two shutouts while allowing two or fewer goals in 10 of 13 games.
