Howard vs. Crawford
As expected, Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard is getting the start today opposite Corey Crawford, who will be making his 27th straight start for the Blackhawks.

Howard was victimized three times on six shots in the first 8:45 of Friday's game in Detroit, but he also made some dazzling saves to keep the deficit somewhat manageable.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
