DETROIT (AP) - Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard insists snow showers from the San Jose Sharks aren't bugging him.
The Sharks have a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series against Detroit, with Game 3 coming up Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena.
The Sharks have skated hard and stopped just in front of the net, spraying ice in Howard's face.
San Jose coach Todd McLellan says he has no time for "gimmicks" or "circus acts" and would address snow showers with his players.
Red Wings coach Mike Babcock says he told his players to be disciplined and determined - and not to worry about snow showers.
