Around the NHL: Wings lose defenseman Ericsson to injury, receive good news on Howard
Good news for the Wings did occur Friday, though. Goalie Jimmy Howard was rehabbing for Grand Rapids (AHL) on Wednesday, when he tweaked his sprained right knee (which was the original injury). Luckily for the Wings, he is listed as just day to day currently. "I don't think it's anything serious. It's still day to day right now. We'll see where it's at," said Blashill after Howard was re-evaluated Thursday. He hasn't played for the Wings since December 20th, vs Tampa Bay, where he injured the knee.
