Wings goalie Jimmy Howard leaves game against Predators in 1st period with upper-body injury

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard left Tuesday night's game against the Nashville Predators with an upper-body injury at 11:22 of the first period.

The team said that he would not return to the game.

Howard allowed two goals against Nashville, and he left less than a minute after Nashville's second goal.

He skated toward the Red Wings bench following a shot at the other end of the ice, and he was replaced by backup Jonas Gustavsson.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
