Jimmy Howard Injury: Red Wings Goaltender Day-To-Day Again With Re-Injured Groin

Jimmy Howard just cannot stay healthy (joining the ranks of many other players on the Detroit Red Wings). According to mlive.com, Howard has suffered another groin injury, and is back to being day-to-day on the injury front. He already has missed three games in March due to the groin injury, leaving a March 4 meeting with the Chicago Blackhawks. He missed three games before returning to play Los Angeles on March 13, and was in net on Monday against the Washington Capitals, a 5-3 loss.

The article does say that general manager Ken Holland has said that Howard's injury is not serious and that he is officially day-to-day with the injury. Still, the team has recalled Ty Conklin from the Grand Rapids Griffins on an emergency basis. He'll likely clear the re-entry waivers and be in New York for the game against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Howard also played just four games in the month of February with a broken finger. It seems he just can't escape the injury bug, a worrying sign as the season nears its end, with guys like Darren Helm and Johan Franzen also on the injury list.
