Red Wings' Howard believes knee injury not serious

Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard said he believes a left knee injury sustained at practice Wednesday isn't serious and is hoping he'll be sidelined for just 1-2 weeks.

Howard is scheduled to have an MRI on Friday morning.

"I don't think I'm that concerned about it," Howard told MLive.com Thursday. "I don't think it's going to be anything over the top where I'm going to be out a long time."

The Red Wings recalled goalie Petr Mrazek from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League to back up Jonas Gustavsson, who starts Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Although Howard's injury could affect his chances of earning a place on the United States Olympic team, he maintains it's not a priority.

"What can you do? It is what it is," Howard said. "You do treatment and try to get back as quick as possible."

Bouchard clears waivers; Strome next for Islanders?

New York Islanders forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard cleared waivers Tuesday and was loaned to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League, the team announced.

Bouchard has nine points in 28 games in his first season with the Islanders; he signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the team in July.

The Islanders could recall forward Ryan Strome from the AHL. Strome, the fifth pick of the 2011 NHL Draft, leads the AHL with 33 points in 23 games. The hope is he can spark a team that is winless in 10 straight (0-8-2) heading into their game Tuesday at the San Jose Sharks.
