Jimmy Howard will be in net for Tuesday's game against Columbus.

Jimmy Howard stopped all 31 shots he faced in a 2-0 win over the Ottawa Senators.

It's a nice win for the Red Wings but it's a big blow for them when you factor in that the win will put another two points between them and the Senators in a battle for a better draft positioning. It's Howard's first shutout of the season, improving his record to 22-27-8 with a 2.81 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
