Hasek misses Friday night game; Wings recall Jimmy Howard @NHLdotcom

DETROIT (AP) - Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek missed Friday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks as a precautionary measure because of some tenderness in his thigh.

The team recalled goalie Jimmy Howard from its AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids to back up Chris Osgood. Howard is 16-14-1 with the Griffins this season, with a 2.81 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage.

Howard is 1-2-0 in four NHL appearances.
