Goalie Jimmy Howard stopped 23 shots in the Detroit Red Wings' 4-3 victory in Ottawa Monday night.
Howard has been okay, but just okay, in recent outings. His record is 9-4-4 on the season but his goals-against average of 2.09 is still impressive after his hot start. His save percentage is .920. He remains a very good option in goal for fantasy play. Nov 24 - 11:03 PM

Jimmy Howard was not his best, stopping just 24 of 27 shots in the Red Wings’ 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

The final Maple Leafs tally came with the net empty. Howard has been hot and cold lately, alternating three-or-more goal-against performances with zero and one over his past five games. Despite the loss, Howard has bounced back this season after a rough 2013-14 campaign that saw him post a 2.66 goals-against average and .910 save percentage. He has a 2.03 GAA and .922 SV%. He’s very underrated and is solid play in fantasy leagues.

Jimmy Howard will start in goal against the Maple Leafs Saturday night in Toronto.

Not a big surprise here as Howard beat the Leafs 4-1 stopping 23 shots earlier this season. Howard is coming off a shutout against Columbus on Tuesday and should be in fine form against an inconsistent Buds' squad.

Jimmy Howard cruised to an easy victory Tuesday as the Red Wings rolled over Columbus by a score of 5-0.

Howard stopped all 28 shots he faced in the victory, as the Blue Jackets' struggles continued. The shutout is the first of the campaign for the Red Wings netminder and the win raises his record to 8-3-4. Even more impressive are his peripherals, as his GAA remains under 2.00 at 1.97 while his save percentage is a sharp .924.

Jimmy Howard will be in net once again as the Red Wings skate in Columbus on Tuesday night.

This will be Howard's fifth consecutive start since back up Jonas Gustavsson separated his shoulder at the end of their overtime loss to the Rangers back on November fifth. Howard for his efforts stil hosts a .919 save percentage and a 2.11 GAA, and fortunately for Detroit, Columbus has managed to score fewer goals this season (albeit by one, 45-44).
