Description: Detroit coach Mike Babcock stood behind Jimmy Howard as his No. 1 goaltender on Tuesday, according to detroitnews.com. "Let's be clear, we'll go as far as Howie takes us," Babcock said. "He's an elite goalie who it hasn't gone as good as he'd like to lately. We'll give him a breather to work with Jimmy (Bedard, Red Wings goaltender coach)."
Insight: Backup Jonas Gustavsson, who is 5-0-1 with a 2.35 GAA and a .926 SV%, will start Wednesday against the Bruins. Howard hasn't won in his last seven starts and is 5-7-6 with a 2.72 GAA and a .908 SV%. He has his difficulties early last season as well before finishing strong, so he's worth holding.
