Jimmy Howard made 20 saves in Detroit's 3-2 win over San Jose on Thursday night.

It was a nice come-from-behind victory as San Jose led by a goal twice. Howard may want the game's opening tally back, though. Even if it was through heavy traffic. Howard now has three Quality Starts since returning from injury. Not a good ratio over five starts, but perhaps this is a sign things are turning around. His record improves to 18-8-9 with a .917 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA.

Jimmy Howard will get the start against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.

While Howard's seasonal numbers are pretty good, owning a 17-8-9 record with a .917 save percentage and a 2.24 GAA across 38 games. He's 1-1-2 with 16 goals against across four starts and six games since he returned from injury on Feb. 11th.

Jimmy Howard kicked out 22 of 25 shots in regulation in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks Monday night.

Howard has allowed at least three goals in three of his five starts since returning from a groin injury. He's still having a great season overall though and we're not too concerned about his recent struggles. It wouldn't shock us if Jonas Gustavsson was asked to start on Tuesday versus Los Angeles though so that he can have a breather ahead of Thursday's contest against San Jose.

Jimmy Howard will get the start against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

Howard had a stinker of a night on Saturday, making just 26 saves on 32 Dallas shots and was pulled in the third period. But overall he's been very good this season. Howard is 17-9-8 with 21 Quality Starts and a .918 save percentage and a 2.22 GAA in 37 games.

Jimmy Howard won his first game in a shootout this season against Chicago on Wednesday night.

He went into the "skills competition" with a 0-7 record, but felt a little more comfortable facing the Blackhawks. "To be honest with you, facing Chicago in a shootout is probably, I hate to say it, it's not easy, but it's easier because we've seen them so much playing in the West for so many years," said Howard. "I'm still learning a lot of guys in the East. Knowing the majority of their moves, that helps." He made 32 stops in regulation and overtime to post his 17th win of 2014-15.

Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard kicked aside 32 shots to help the Red Wings edge the Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout in Chicago Wednesday night.

Howard was stellar, making a handful of dazzling saves against the Blackhawks. In the process, Howard improved his already impressive numbers. His record is now 17-8-8, his goals-against average is 2.10 and his save percentage is .921. In case anyone needed a reminder, Howard reiterated Wednesday that he is without question one of the NHL`s premier goalies and a very, very good fantasy choice in net.

Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes Wednesday night in Chicago.

Howard will be heavily relied upon for the foreseeable future with Petr Mrazek sent back to Grand Rapids of the AHL. On Wednesday, he will be making his fourth consecutive start since returning from a month-long injury. On the season, he has a 16-8-8 record, 2.11 goals-against-average, which is good for third best in the league, and .921 save percentage.

Goalie Jimmy Howard played well Monday night but took the loss as the Montreal Canadiens came into Detroit and shut out the Red Wings 2-0.

The Wings are slumping. They`ve lost three consecutive games. But it`s not Howard`s fault. Monday, he made 27 saves against Montreal and was the victim of his team`s inability to score goals against Canadiens goalie Carey Price. The Habs scored one of their two goals when Howard was pulled late in the third period for an extra attacker.

Jimmy Howard will be in goal for Detroit against Montreal on Monday.

He stopped 34 of the 38 shots he faced against Winnipeg Saturday night in his first start back from a groin injury. The Red Wings lost in a shootout and Howard felt he had to shake off some rust. Howard has lost his previous two starts versus Montreal this season.
Feb 16 - 8:52 AM

Jimmy Howard wasn't thrilled with his performance in Saturday's shootout loss to Winnipeg.

"It was great to be back out there competing with the guys," said Howard. "Not up to my standards, but I'm not going to get too down on myself right now. I'm going to watch the video and try to learn from my mistakes." This was Howard's first start since missing 10 games with a groin injury. He should be a strong fantasy play going forward.
Feb 15 - 10:16 AM

Jimmy Howard yielded four goals on 38 shots in Detroit’s 5-4 shootout loss to Winnipeg on Saturday night.

This was Howard’s first start since returning from a month-long injury hiatus. Howard gave up one goal in the first, two in the second and another in the third period. He ultimately wasn’t able to stop all of Winnipeg’s shots in the shootout, however, giving up the only goal to Drew Stafford. He has a 2.14 goals-against average and .919 save percentage this season.
