Right about when the Wings were getting caught dumping to much water in front of Howard, did anyone catch what Redmond said? Something to the effect.... "what the hell are they waiting for. Howards got a bad knee and it might tighten up.. "
It did not look good, I am guessing we will see Conks on Saturday. That looked like at the very least he tweaked it and is going to be pretty sore tomorrow. On the positive side Conks actually looked pretty good against Chicago, and he will get to start at home where he was solid during his last tenure. This team cannot afford something to actually be wrong (more than a bruise or minor sprain) however, Howard and Datsyuk are irreplaceable to this years squad.
He's fine, wasn't hit hard and his knee didn't get twisted or bent or anything, was likely trying to sell a possible call/buy some time for the team
The way Mickey said it leads me to believe there may have been a problem BEFORE last night. That or very presumptive on Mickey's behalf.. anyway, hope Im wrong, cause this team would be in a world of hell without Howard.
