by @NHL

The Detroit Red Wings placed goalie Jimmy Howard on injured reserve on Saturday after he sustained a lower-body injury in a 5-4 overtime win against the New Jersey Devils on Friday.

Howard, who will miss at least the next seven days, was injured in the first period when his skate got caught in the ice. He allowed one goal playing 11:31.

Howard was replaced by Petr Mrazek, who made 13 saves on 16 shots.

Howard has started the past four games and played eight of the past nine for the Red Wings. He was 5-5-0 with a 1.82 goals-against average and .940 save percentage.

Detroit recalled goalie Jared Coreau from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, but Mrazek is expected to start against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; SN, TVA Sports, FS-D, NHL.TV).
