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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
