Osgood back on IR; MacDonald recalled
DETROIT -- The Red Wings today announced that goaltender Joey MacDonald has been recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.  MacDonald will serve as Jimmy Howard’s backup tonight when the Red Wings host the Vancouver Canucks at Joe Louis Arena (7:30 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports Detroit Plus and 97.1 The Ticket).
MacDonald, 31, has appeared in twelve games for Detroit this season, posting a 4-4-2 record.  He currently leads all Red Wings' goaltenders with a 2.10 GAA and .926 save percentage. To clear a roster spot for MacDonald, the Red Wings have placed veteran goaltender Chris Osgood (groin) on injured reserve.
