Jimmy Howard will be back in goal for Detroit on Thursday.

He struggled in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to Arizona, but coach Mike Babcock is showing him some faith. "The bottom line is he played two good games, couldn't keep it out of our net last game," said the Wings bench boss. "He gets an opportunity to go again today."

Coach Mike Babcock didn't sound pleased with Jimmy Howard after Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to Arizona.

"We did tons of good things, but we were chasing the game all night long," the Wings bench boss said. "We gave up two penalty-kill goals and I thought our PK was outstanding. We gave up too many goals any way you look at it. ... The puck can't go in your net five times and you expect to win in the NHL. Not good enough." Howard's poor outing may result in Petr Mrazek getting the nod on Thursday against San Jose.
