I figured this was coming at some point when I heard that Gustavsson wasn't close to returning and when Babs said that with MacDonald and Gustavsson injured, they only had one goalie available. Ouch. Tom Mac has a sad...

Babcock said Howard would have been given the night off had one of his veteran backups, either Jonas Gustavsson (groin) or Joey MacDonald (back), been healthy.

But with only inexperienced Tom McCollum available, and earning points necessary in the standings, Howard has had to play all eight Wings games.

"You're supposed to have more than one goalie and be able to hand the baton to someone else," Babcock said. "Gus and Mac are on the shelf. Where are you supposed to go? That shouldn't go on him (Howard), that should go on me."
