any idea who gets the start against atl and pitts? i picked up howard hoping to get a few games out of him a week ago.
Against Pittsburgh, Chris Osgood will most likely get the start.
He had two good games against New Jersey and Washington, Babcock was fairly pleased with him:
"It was real good for him because the puck wasn't bouncing off of him, and he was confident, and that's great to see," Babcock said. "He'll feel real good, and he should be proud of himself."

Against Atlanta it could be Osgood, given the fact that the Wings had the weekend off and a veteran like Ozzy should be able to do back-to-back games.
On the other hand, Babcock could play Howard, because there are 4 games in 6 days upcoming week, so maybe he wants to distribute the load.
And I guess a good portion of his decision will depend on the outcome of the Penguins game. If Ozzy is hot.. keep him hot.
