DETROIT (AP) -Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek wouldn't dress for Friday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks as a precautionary measure because of some tenderness in his thigh.

The team said it recalled goalie Jimmy Howard from its AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids to back up Chris Osgood Friday night. 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.
