"We weren't very good the last game. We've got a big game here today. We just try to live in the moment here and get prepared for games."

Howie says he's excited to get back and the solid play of Petr Mrazek has allowed him to get healthy as not to hurry back.

"Pete did a tremendous job for us for the whole month of January and a little bit here into February and it's put us into a good spot...
I just have to pick up where he left off."
